We believe that without the security of a place to live, it is impossible for individuals who struggle with homelessness to break the cycle. CASL serves 1,000+ people across Florida. Our goal is to help transform the lives of people struggling with homelessness, especially those with a disability, so they can thrive in our community, enjoy their lives, and be in a safe environment. Continue scrolling to see what some of our clients have to say about CASL’s impact on their lives.
“Before I found CASL, I was living in a group home shortly after I left my unhappy marriage of 16 years. When I found CASL, they provided me with resources and a new permanent place to live. Thanks to them, I have developed the skills to become more independent and financially secure. For the first time in my life, I am totally responsible for my own happiness and direction in life, and I thank CASL for saving my life.”
“Before learning about CASL, I was ready to give up on my life. I was living on the streets for seven years, unable to keep appointments with doctors, and didn’t know how to get help or possibly pay for it. I was unable to work because I did not have a home address. It was a struggle just to eat.
“CASL connected me with a case manager who immediately started to help me with phone calls, appointments, therapy, doctors, clothes, and a stable home. They went above and beyond and continue to help me. The biggest blessing of all is that I am in a beautiful stable home with an amazing roommate. The people at CASL are compassionate, helpful, and truly amazing.”
“Who knows where I might be if it hadn’t been for CASL’s supportive housing program? I can look towards the future with a clear mind and good spirit in my soul. I feel very safe at my new residence and feel better about myself and my new attitude.
I love CASL’s case management services and am very thankful that I am finally able to get the help that I need. I now have a job and a reason to save money for things I need for the future and to keep surviving. The people at CASL play a very important role in my world. I’m surrounded by positive people with positive attitudes.”
“Never in a million years would I have thought I’d ever become homeless. When my husband died in 2016, I lost everything. My home, furniture, car, pets, and even my clothes. Not knowing where to go, I slept next to a Chinese restaurant behind the bushes.
When the case manager from CASL found me a home, I felt like the weight of the world was lifted off of me. CASL was a shining light in the darkness. All the social service organizations in the area have been immensely helpful.
I received clothes, food, mental health services, and a place that helped provide my medical care. My caseworker goes to all my doctors and psychiatric appointments with me. Thank you, CASL. You saved my life!”
