CASA is so pleased to announce our August Partner of the Month: Verizon.

Verizon is proud to partner with CASA in its programs, such as the Housing Solution Fund, to help bridge the gap between what residents can afford to pay in rent at 30% of their income and CASA’s costs to maintain their high-quality affordable rental homes. CASA’s mission provides an opportunity for residents to put down roots in the local community and most importantly experience the peace and stability of a permanent home.

CASA’s Senior Director of Mission Advancement, Missy Hatley, says, “We are so grateful for Verizon’s partnership in meeting the housing needs of our most vulnerable neighbors in the Triangle. People with disabilities, veterans, families, and essential workers deserve a safe place to call home, and Verizon has helped make it possible for the 460 households we serve.”

Verizon wants to create opportunities for individuals and communities to thrive. Citizen Verizon is our company-wide responsible business plan to use our resources, technology and employees to bring economic, environmental and social advancement to our communities.  We’re on a mission to help solve some of the biggest challenges that impact underrepresented populations and it is part of our commitment to help leave no one behind.

Verizon truly appreciates being recognized as this month’s partner, but most importantly, we recognize and applaud CASA in its 30 year milestone and commitment to improve the quality of life in the communities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
