Casa Youth Shelter is one of only eight nonprofit organizations to be a recipient of the Orange County Register’s 2011 Season of Caring campaign. Over the next two months, the OC Register will be publishing several articles about Casa Youth Shelter’s impact in our community.
An article featuring former Casa resident Amber Boggs was published in the Sunday, Dec. 4, edition of the Register.

About Casa Youth Shelter
Casa Youth Shelter provides emergency temporary shelter for youth ages 12-17 who are homeless or abused and in need of crisis counseling.
Since our founding in 1978, Casa Youth Shelter has maintained a singular focus on providing runaway, throwaway and abandoned youth in crisis with a safe place to call home, enabling them to come through the crisis with increased personal strength and a sense of renewal while in a supportive environment, with family reunification as a primary goal.
During the past 33 years, we have provided shelter care to 10,800 youth and impacted the lives of over 41,900 family members.
