Volunteer Opportunities (6)

CASA operates an emergency shelter for women and children fleeing domestic and/or sexual violence situations. Our shelter operates 24/7/365, which means there are always CASA advocates available to help you any time of the day or night.

Individuals who choose to access CASA’s residential services, begin with our adult survivor program. Within your first 72 hours in shelter, CASA staff will perform a lethality assessment with you and discuss your personal goals while you are in shelter. From this meeting, staff will help you create an individualized action plan, coupled with the creation of a personal safety plan. 


  •  Males age 18 and above cannot be accepted into shelter
  • No pets can be brought into shelter

When making the decision to come into our shelter, we encourage survivors to contact our crisis hotline at (660) 827-5555 or (800) 894-1151. Our advocate will listen and help safely guide you through your decision to leave your abusive partner. Our advocate will further help you determine what you need to bring with you to reside in our facility.
