Providing Education, Training and Community Involvement,

(Including our Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Education),

Helping with transportation/mileage for our clients,

Shelter-Safe Housing Options -

(including helping with deposits, rent, & expenses)

& Many more services......

     Our agency uses monetary contributions to purchase exactly what survivors need and when they need it.  Each situation is unique and monetary donations give us the most flexible, useful and dependable options for helping survivors of all ages. Please donate to CAASA in order to help victims receive the services they need in the journey to recovery. Every little bit helps!  You can donate online by using our PayPal account or send a check to our main office at CAASA, P.O. Box 996, Spencer, IA 51301
