CAAFA is  a sexual and domestic abuse service provider in northern Pinal County.  Services include a 24/7 hotline, a shelter for women and children, trained needs advocates, legal advocates, support groups, empowerment sessions and outreach and education.  Dorian handed out a Wish List of items needed by CAAFA (see other story in this newsletter).
