Class of Housing/Services: Shelter for victims of abuse

General Information:
Shelter for victims of abuse. The mission of the Citrus Abuse Shelter Association (CASA) is to help victims and survivors of domestic violence by providing shelter, safety, intervention, and education, and to educate the community for social change. Services Provided: 24-Hour Hotline A twenty-four-hour hotline is available to request shelter at any time or to seek advice from a professionally trained advocate.   Emergency Shelter CASA provides shelter in a structurally safe building that will be annually inspected by health and fire inspectors to women and their children who are victims of domestic violence.  Men are referred to another local shelter.  Our shelter services provide a safe haven for the survivors as they are recovering from abuse and working on a plan for a successful life free from abuse.  The shelter will provide all food, toiletries, and clothing as needed.  All outreach services listed below are also provided. Individual Counseling The counselors provide crisis-intervention counseling to survivors of domestic violence.  Counselors talk about dynamics of domestic violence, and they assist survivors with achieving goals and overcoming personal challenges. Women's Support Groups These groups are open to women survivors of domestic violence.  The group focuses on the dynamics of domestic violence, the effects of domestic violence on children, safety planning, self-care, and red-flags in relationships. Advocacy The Advocates assist survivors of domestic violence with safety planning and goal setting. The advocate works with the survivor to devise a plan to keep the survivor and dependents safe from further abuse.  Next, the advocate listens to the goals of the survivor to assist the survivor and to empower her to have a successful, independent life.  An advocate may assist the survivor with the following services:  shelter, counseling, groups or classes, job assistance, housing referrals, state-aid assistance, legal assistance and accompaniment to court, information and assistance with Victims Crime Compensation, Address Confidentiality Program, and Relocation Money. Public Education CASA will provide professional training and community education on the dynamics of domestic violence.  Professional training is an extensive training available to any business, including law enforcement, health/medical field, and the school system.  Community education includes a description of CASA services and a brief overview of domestic violence.   Children's Services CASA provides positive intervention services to children that are residing in the domestic violence shelter.  Services include activities and planned trips that promote character, self-esteem, and healing.  Outreach groups are available during times that coincide with the Women's Support Groups.  Services also include safety planning, assessing the needs of the children in the shelter and making appropriate referrals.
