CASA will renovate the 16,000 square-foot building at 2706 Pulaski Highway.  Services will be significantly expanded, allowing CASA to serve an additional 7,000 low-income residents annually, for a total of 11,000 a year.

Programs will include:

  • An on-site vocational training lab with a focus on the healthcare, construction and IT fields;
  • Expansion of employment placement and workforce development programs;
  • Expansion of afterschool and youth leadership development programs;
  • Expansion of ESOL programming to include intermediate and advanced levels;
  • Increased capacity for tax preparation, financial literacy, citizenship classes, and legal services.

As of October 2018, CASA had raised all but $1M towards the project goal! Please help us reach our goal by donating – and leave a legacy for generations to come!
