What CASA Members Are Saying

When I went along to my first CASA social little did I know it would be a stepping stone for me. I still remember the tremendous welcome I got. That feeling remained with me. I felt so welcome and felt that I had something to give.

– Mary

As a disabled person I always tend to wonder are people seeing me, or are they seeing the wheelchair. The fact that I am in a wheelchair is just a fact of life. My friends in CASA, I am glad to say have always only ever seen… me…

– Ken

Embracing the principle of one to one helped our daughter fit with ease into the CASA family. Over this time she has enjoyed socials and holiday breaks to Swords and Malahide. These times of respite have been invaluable to us as parents. The friendships our daughter has made in the CASA family have helped to make her a happy confident person. When asked what CASA has mean to her she replied “Being with my friends”

– Sean & Noleen

There are no words to describe how absolutely amazing this group is honestly. I have been a member of CASA for over 30 years. It is a charity very close to my heart. CASA has given me so much over the years. I have met so many wonderful people I am thrilled to be able to call friends. I have had the opportunity to go to Lourdes on pilgrimage many times, it is such a special experience. I am so very lucky to be a part of this wonderful organisation.

– CASA Member

The joy I got from helping others. The wonderful friends I made and a very special trip to Lourdes with Casa in 1988 before I emigrated to Australia. I still write to one person that I looked after and I visit him every time I go home to Cork. He is almost 71 and going strong.

– CASA Volunteer

Like many novice volunteers I started out wanting to make a difference, give something back, feel good about my place in life. Caring is a shared experience it’s hard to say who is helping who, and you know its working when you’re still there.

What I like about CASA ……….volunteers, family, friends, Social outlet is very important. Paddy ropes me into bucket collections.
Conor Dillon – CASA Member

I enjoy the social aspect of CASA. I enjoy meeting all the members and going to Lourdes with CASA

Tom Campbell – CASA Member

CASA means coming together, meeting your friends and having a good time. Singing, chatting and eating meals together. Making new friends and hopefully staying together. I’ve been in CASA for a long, long time and hopefully for many more years to come.
Orla King – CASA Member

The volunteers in CASA are very nice to me. They make me feel very happy. I am a member for 30 years
Patricia Morrissey – CASA Member

I look forward to the socials every month and getting to hang out with my friends. The Mass is always beautiful and then the sing song and dancing the day away. The room is always full of love and happiness, Its a great way to spend a Sunday Funday with my friends. I have been volunteering with CASA for the past 10 years and made so many beautiful friendships. I am so grateful and look forward to each event. I get to share and make memories. Thank you CASA for all you do.
Kayleen Griffin – CASA Volunteer

I joined CASA over 23 years ago. My intention was to go to one social only. Look what happened!! I got hooked on the jolitty and the caring atmosphere. Since retiring I have resigned other volunteering duties but could never see my life without CASA.
Marie McKenna – CASA Volunteer

I’ve been with CASA years now and I love it. It's a great organisation both for volunteers and Members. I’ve gone to Lourdes on many occasions and would recommend CASA to anyone.
Eileen Murray – CASA Volunteer

I enjoy meeting everyone and hearing what everyone has been up to. Helping with someone it makes me feel like I’m giving something back. The people in CASA are so happy at every social .. It makes me happy.
