Solving Homelessness in the Wake of COVID-19

CASA remains committed to its Affordable Housing mission

Here at CASA, we’re doing everything we can to conduct business as usual through the COVID-19 crisis. Most of our staff has shifted to remote work, and we have adopted new technologies that are allowing us to be just as productive at home while keeping our staff and resident’s safety in mind.

An Impact Update from our CEO, Mary Jean Seyda

How we’re helping

Our residents are among the most vulnerable population in the Triangle. They’re already feeling the economic impacts that the “stay at home” notice is bringing, and many of them report they have lost their incomes.

Wellness Calls

We’re checking in with every single one of our 500+ residents to make sure they have everything they need and that they understand the severity of the situation. We’re gathering as much information as possible to gauge the impact.

Supply Runs

With the help of generous donors, we’re bringing supplies directly to our residents, including paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, nonperishable food items, and full meals. We want to make sure our residents have enough to eat and are comfortable so they can focus on their health and well-being.

Emergency Funds

For residents who have lost their income or need a little help making ends meet, we’re here to help. We’re offering assistance on a case-by-case basis to those who have been economically impacted by COVID-19.

Virtual Lease Signings

We’re still moving people out of homelessness and into their own apartments. We’re conducting virtual lease signings, getting people their keys through lock boxes, and leaving “welcome home” baskets with supplies for them in their apartments. Having a safe place to live and take shelter is important now more than ever.

How you can help

If you are able, please consider making a donation. COVID-19 is threatening the health and livelihood of the vulnerable population we serve. Our veterans, families, seniors, and individuals living with disabilities are always among the most vulnerable people in our community. During times of crisis, neighbors who are economically or medically fragile will suffer the most. We need as much support as possible to help our residents through this crisis– we can’t do it without you!
