Behavioral Health Intervention Team (BHIT) Social Worker  

About the Organization
For the last 30 years, CASA has provided affordable housing in the Triangle for those at risk of homelessness. Grounded in the belief that the solution to homelessness is housing, CASA owns and manages more than fifty multi-family and scattered site residential properties that provide a place to live for families, veterans, individuals with disabilities, formerly homeless individuals and those in the workforce who struggle to afford housing.
CASA is experienced in the full range of management activities required to provide high quality service to residents giving them an opportunity to live successfully. Since the acquisition of its first property in Raleigh in 1993, CASA has grown to nearly five hundred units in Wake, Durham, and Orange Counties, with five additional properties currently under development with more planned in all three counties.
CASA is a non-profit affordable housing organization funded through rental income, philanthropic gifts, and local, state, and federal government. CASA's main administrative and property management office is in Raleigh, with a second property management location in Durham.

The mission of CASA is to provide access to stable, affordable housing for people who are homeless or at risk by developing and managing rental communities.
