Recognizing the social factor​s that contribute so substance abuse are often grounded in poverty, social and emotional isolation, challenges to access education, health, transportation and employment CASA has embraced a core philosophy of "place matters."


Our initiatives focus on engaging community members as social change agents to improve community conditions and create environments where families thrive.





Our public health & safety initiatives are designed using the 

Strategic Prevention Framework 


this includes:

  • comprehensive community-based assessment;

  • increasing resident capacity for community problem-solving;

  • developing a realistic plan with objectives that are achievable, timely and  measurable;

  • implementing that plan with integrity to achieve long-term solutions that are grounded in research;  and

  • evaluating what we are doing,

  • asking are we doing what we planned to do?

  • Is it making a difference?

  • Do we have the capacity to modify our course of action when it's necessary?

  • Are we ensuring that residents are engaged through every step of the process?
