Issues surrounding domestic violence are never comfortable or easy to discuss. The fact is, according to Centers for Disease Control's Prevention, "Every minute 20 people are victims of intimate partner violence."
At CASA our mission is to raise our voices against violence through advocacy, empowerment and social change.
Please join us, along with Allstate, in helping those who are facing domestic violence in their lives.
