CASA is the premier housing developer for persons with disabilities in Wake County, NC. Our agency operates a shelter for women who are homeless, most of whom have some form of mental illness, substance addiction or a combination of both. CASA consistently works with our case managers to make suitable housing available for our clients in need of supportive housing. The positive relationship we have had with CASA goes back for more than 15 years. Without CASA, our community would be at a loss for supportive housing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The placement and successful housing of our clients moving from a homeless shelter to permanent housing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help it grow.
