At CASA, we believe that no veteran of our Armed Forces should face homelessness. We’re proud to have constructed veteran-specific housing in Raleigh and in Durham. Across our nearly 500 units, just about 20% of our tenants are veterans living with disabilities.
Last year, Durham celebrated the end of chronic homelessness among veterans, and we’re working hard to help Raleigh and Chapel Hill achieve the same important milestone.“
There are many things you can do to help veterans who are homeless or recovering from homelessness.
- Volunteer – Volunteers of America of the Carolinas supports veterans who are homeless by providing them with transitional housing and case management services. Volunteers of all kinds are welcome!
- Support emergency shelters in our area who provide immediate relief from the streets for homeless veterans. Shelters are often in need of financial donations, household items, and volunteers. The Salvation Army in particular offers shelter, rehabilitation, and other services for veterans across the Triangle.
- Contribute or volunteer at a local Veteran’s StandDown event
- Support CASA’s efforts to build more veteran housing by becoming a monthly donor on our website
Those who risk their lives to protect our freedom should never have to worry about where they’ll sleep at night. You can make a big difference in the life of a veteran facing homelessness.
