Community-Related FAQ
What is CASA?
CASA is a non-profit affordable housing developer and property manager. CASA’s mission is to develop and manage affordable housing, providing opportunities for successful living.
How does CASA end homelessness for its tenants?
CASA builds or renovates apartments in order to add to the limited availability of affordable housing in our region. CASA housing is permanent housing. Once a tenant moves in, there is no time limit on how long he or she can live there, and rent will remain affordable. CASA’s goal for each tenant is that he or she never faces 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.  CASA is focused on the unique challenges facing veterans living with disabilities and individuals living with mental health concerns.
How does CASA help people live independently?
CASA is committed to providing knowledgeable and compassionate property management services to each tenant.  CASA owns and manages CASA apartments, with leasing specialists and maintenance technicians who can provide personalized attention and intervention to meet the unique needs of our tenants.  CASA’s goal is to provide the support needed to ensure that our tenants never face homelessness again.
Where are CASA apartments located?
CASA maintains properties across Wake, Durham, and Orange Counties.
How can I help someone apply for a CASA apartment?

Please see the application page about how to assist someone with an application.  Supportive Housing applicants are encouraged to include contact information for a support person or agency along with their application so CASA is aware of the applicant’s relationship with a community advocate.  Please review CASA’s Supportive Housing Referral information page to learn more.  

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, this happens almost every day. CASA’s Board and staff are focused on a strategic plan to grow to serve more people in need. Over 1,000 qualified applicants are currently waiting to be matched to a CASA apartment.
How can I help?
