CASDA relies on the support of our community to sustain our services to victims and survivors of violence. Donors, volunteers, and interns provide the support and structure that make our work possible. To learn more about how you can help, please check out the opportunities listed below.
Support Us Financially
CASDA’s work continues and will be needed long after the Covid-19 pandemic is fully behind us! By making a donation, you are supporting the general operations of the agency. It’s an easy, effective way to make a difference! The community’s financial support allows CASDA to provide essential services like these:
- 24-hour, non-judgmental support to victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, or child abuse
- An immediate response to victims after an incident has been reported to law enforcement
- Community education
- Facilitated group support for survivors of abuse

The next time you’re stocking up, think of us. Our shelter works to keep the following on hand for individuals and families fleeing abuse: toiletries; first aid supplies; cleaning supplies; baby wipes and diapers; gift certificates; pillows (new) and non-perishable food items.
**During Child Abuse Prevention Month (April 2021) Superior High School junior Natalie Markon created THIS HANDY LIST with Amazon links to encourage classmates and community members to purchase items for children and teens served by CASDA. She suggests that folks buy local when they can, but those who find ordering easier are welcome to have items shipped directly to CASDA (318 21st Ave. E., Superior, WI, 54880). April is over, but we would still be glad to take items geared toward children and older youth.
