As the subject of sexual violence takes center stage in our nation's presidential campaign, we stand with all survivors, across generations, race and culture, gender identity and social class to ardently oppose rape culture in both language and action.
For those interested in reading about a positive step taken to assist and support survivors:




Oasis therapist, Lucy McLellan, has been invited to serve as an advisor in the new trauma-focused curriculum development of Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street.

Dane County CASA joins Canopy Center as one of our programs! 


Effective October 2, 2015, Dane County CASA merged with Canopy Center. This merger allowed Dane County CASA to continue it's important programming and share administration costs for things like an Executive Director, Finance Manager and Volunteer Coordinator. With a wonderful synthesis of program philosophy and mission, this merger made so much sense it was a wonder we didn't think of it sooner! Six of the Dane County CASA Board Directors made the move to the Canopy Center Board to continue to shape and grow the entire Canopy Center slate of programs. We also welcomed the CASA staff - Kelsey, Meaghan and Kim!
