What is CASA?

CASA is a non-profit affordable housing developer and property manager in Wake, Durham, and Orange counties in North Carolina. We provide supportive housing for people living with disabilities and workforce housing for people with low to moderate income. 

How does CASA end homelessness?

CASA builds or renovates apartments to add to the limited availability of affordable housing in our region. We provide permanent housing. There is no time limit on how long someone can live in a CASA home, and rent will always remain affordable. Our goal for each tenant is that they never face homelessness again.  The solution to homelessness is permanent affordable housing.

Who does CASA serve?
CASA provides quality, affordable rental properties for people who have a disability or earn a modest wage, with a focus on the unique challenges facing veterans living with disabilities and individuals living with mental health concerns.

We own and manage all our apartments, with leasing specialists and maintenance technicians who provide personalized attention to meet the unique needs of our residents. CASA’s goal is to provide the support needed to ensure that our tenants never face homelessness again.

Where are CASA apartments located?

How can I help someone apply for a CASA apartment?

 CASA is not currently accepting new applications for housing. We are focusing on those who previously applied for our housing and are waiting for a unit. As apartments become available, we are matching them with our current group of applicants. If you provide your contact information on this page, we will alert you when we are accepting applications again. 

How do people find out about CASA housing options?
Service providers and community partners in Wake, Durham, and Orange Counties spread the word about the availability of Supportive and Workforce Housing options with CASA.  Workforce Housing vacancies are also advertised on Craigslist and SocialServe.
What happens if CASA doesn’t have an apartment available for a person in need?

Unfortunately, we are not able to house every applicant. CASA’s Board and staff are focused on a strategic plan to grow and serve more people in need. For a list of housing resources and emergency shelters in our area, please click here.
