CASA is proud to introduce our June Partner of the Month, the Forest at Duke!

The Forest at Duke in Durham is a vibrant, not-for-profit 501c3 continuing care retirement community, in operation since 1992. The Forest at Duke is located on 42 acres in Durham, adjacent to Duke University. The earliest envision was that one day The Forest at Duke could house a full service, continuing care retirement community – one where many of them could ultimately move in and thrive. Over the last 30+ years, The Forest at Duke has become exactly what they envisioned. Committed to their resident’s top-notch care, they also encourage residents to give their time, talents, and support back to their community.

The Forest at Duke has supported CASA’s Denson Apartments for Veterans in Durham for the last four years. This year, Forest at Duke so graciously expanded their giving to CASA to include support of several new residents who will soon be moving into CASA’s newest Durham property, Bryan Place, as well as residents at our Denson Apartments. Grant funding provided by the Forest at Duke supports direct housing costs for the community.

Thank you, Forest at Duke, for your commitment to social responsibility and for your belief in the power of affordable housing!

Denson Apartments are named for former CASA Board member and Retired Federal Judge Alexander B. Denson, who now lives at the Forest at Duke with his wife, Mary. The Denson Apartments offer 23 one-bedroom, one-bath apartments to veterans living with disabilities who have experienced homelessness.
