King's Ridge

In Loving Memory of Longtime CASA CEO, Debra King

King's Ridge Key Components

King’s Ridge is CASA’s largest, most ambitious project to date. This 100-unit community consists of 1- 2- and 3-bedroom units and is designated for families and individuals moving out of homelessness. For the first time ever, CASA is including supportive services on site. The building will have two medical clinics, case managers, a tenant liaison, and flexible community space—all designed to wrap our future tenants in care and provide them with a healing and supportive community. King’s Ridge is currently under construction and will be completed in the Fall of 2024.

Access to Permanent & Affordable Housing

Residents will pay one-third of their income for rent and can renew their lease year after year.

Minimal Barriers to Participation

King’s Ridge will be home to single adults and families who live with disabilities, histories of homelessness, and insufficient credit to qualify for conventional housing.

Housing First Model

This model recognizes the importance of stable housing as the first step in addressing other life challenges. Once housed, residents partner with case managers to determine which supportive services they need to increase long-term success in their new homes.

Comprehensive, Accessible, Wraparound Services

Residents at King’s Ridge will have easy access to supportive services, including case management, employment assistance, mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, childcare navigation, connections to public assistance programs, and other services to prevent evictions and ensure residents understand their rights and responsibilities as renters.

Personal Voice & Choice

Like a resident of a traditional apartment community, King’s Ridge residents will sign a lease, have control over their own lives and schedules, and can come and go as they please. They can direct the array and intensity of services they receive by working with a service provider to set individual goals.

Who Will Live at King’s Ridge?

Raleigh and Wake County desperately need more affordable apartments for both single adults and families. Ending homelessness for single adults leads to better health outcomes and more positive participation in the community. Ending homelessness for families with children disrupts a generational cycle of poverty and decreases the likelihood that children and youth who live at King’s Ridge will experience homelessness as adults.

At King’s Ridge, single adults and families will live in community with one another, just as they do in neighborhoods and apartment communities across the city. We envision King’s Ridge as a vibrant community that meets residents where they are and is designed with supports for aging in place. The community will feature adult and child-friendly flexible spaces for counseling, meetings, and various activities.

How Will Residents be Selected?

Our commitment is to end homelessness at King’s Ridge. Check back in early 2024 for details about who we will be working with and how residents will be selected.

I’m extremely excited about King’s Ridge. I think that it can really provide an opportunity for us to demonstrate what is possible through community collaboration for our highest risk and most vulnerable homeless residents.

I picture King’s Ridge as a community. There’s going to be a beautiful community space there, to gather with people from the community. There will be medical services, mental health services, and case management. So whatever they need is right there.

King’s Ridge will provide permanent housing and support for families moving out of homelessness in our community. Funding this type of tangible and supportive mission aligns perfectly with our goal at Bank of America to partner in efforts that work to solve systemic community issues from the ground up. As CASA and others continue their important work to address the affordable housing needs in our region, we remain committed to help reduce economic and racial inequality within the Triangle, with the ultimate goal of creating lasting change.

Wake Stone believes in King’s Ridge’s mission and supports it wholeheartedly. We have benefited from more than 50 years of supplying aggregate materials for the foundation of Raleigh’s growth. A a corporate citizen, we believe it is important to give back to our communities. We are excited to participate in the King’s Ridge project by not only providing necessary funding for construction but also aggregate materials for the facility’s foundation. This project provides the critical resources necessary for our neighbors in need to make Raleigh a great place for all.

CASA is one of the few organizations dedicated to creating DEEPLY affordable housing. It takes incredible coalition building to create the funding to do what is otherwise nearly impossible. Gina and I wanted to be part of this significant effort with so many great partners, and we are so honored to do so.
