Support CASA

Volunteer Opportunities

CASA’s volunteers are an invaluable part of our mission to provide and manage affordable housing for people living with poverty or disability in North Carolina’s Triangle region. Our volunteers help us maintain our properties, run our office, and plan events while keeping housing costs low for our tenants.

Property Maintenance

CASA relies on volunteer help to keep our properties in excellent shape to serve as an example to the community. Groups can help with seasonal landscaping tasks, like:

  • Cleanup
  • Mulching or river rock replacement
  • Sign maintenance

“Welcome Home Baskets”

Every January, CASA participates in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service by preparing “Welcome Home” baskets, which help tenants settle into their new lives. You can volunteer to help assemble the baskets. Younger volunteers contribute by creating colorful and creative cards to complete the baskets.

You can also help complete the baskets by donating some basic household items, like:

  • Medium laundry baskets
  • Bathroom supplies, like soap and towels
  • Dishwashing soap
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Small laundry detergent
  • Kitchen cleaning supplies
  • Non-perishable food
  • Pot holders
  • Clothespins
  • Small all-purpose cleaner, like Lysol or Clorox
  • Kitchen utensils and flatware

CASA is happy to take weekday or weekend help from individuals or groups in Wake, Durham, and Orange Counties, North Carolina. Contact CASA at (919) 307-3433 or email email hidden; JavaScript is required to learn more about how you can volunteer with CASA.
