Budget and Timeline
CASA’s vision for Woodbridge and the Commonwealth of Virginia goes far beyond the renovation and reopening of our Woodbridge center. Through this capital campaign, CASA’s goal is to transform both the building and the surrounding community into a hub of empowerment for underserved communities.
Phased Project Plan
- Establish the Need – Conduct robust research on the community and the movement organizations that serve the community to establish a clear need for CASA – Completed
- Partner and Funder Landscape Analysis – Expand on and deepen our existing relationships with partners and funders in the state and seek to establish new ones before our arrival, most notably with local and state government partners that so often have served as foundational funders for our community services – Underway
- Movement politics – Work with existing partners and coalitions on the ground to establish friendly relationships and ensure our move does not negatively impact the broader movement – Completed
- Locate a site – Establish a headquarters in PWC – Completed
- Complete acquisition and renovations of the site – CASA’s selected site is an existing building close to I-95 and accessible via many forms of public transportation. The selected location is not only perfect for CASA, located near communities that we serve, it will be a revitalization opportunity for the community as the building has stood vacant for 3+ years. Renovations to the building will be minimal as it continues to be in good shape. CASA plans to carve out spaces for offices and transform the first floor of the building into a full vocational training center and workforce site (CASA Tech) – Underway
- Goal: Development/Expansion of CASA’s basic core services – financial literacy and tax assistance, citizenship services, health & social services referrals outreach and education.
