Consortium Assault Services App is a collaborative project in the Five
College Area, which includes UMass Amherst, Amherst College, Smith
College, Mt. Holyoke College and Hampshire College. CASA is a centralized
database of resources available to help a victim of sexual assault or
misconduct. Resources range from professional counselors to town police
across all five colleges.
The app can be used by sexual assault survivors, their friends, or anyone
who needs information about resources on his/her college campus. The user
is asked a series of questions about the resources he/she seeks and then
provided phone numbers that the user can either call directly or save to
the phone's contacts for later use.
