How Do I Apply For Housing?

To begin the housing application process, please call our Sarasota office (941) 225-2373 and let them know you are interested in housing. They will then provide you with all the information needed to begin the application process. Due to our many applicants, we must, unfortunately, remind applicants that completing the application process does not guarantee a spot in one of CASL’s homes.

What is the application process?

We will confirm receipt of your application and review it; then, you will be contacted within three business days. If we have no availability but you qualify for one of our housing options, your name will be added to a waitlist, and you will be contacted when an opening becomes available.
