Community Action Agency of Somerville (CAAS)
For 34 years CAAS (Community Action Agency of Somerville) has helped reduce poverty among local families and individuals while also working to change the societal conditions that cause and perpetuate poverty. They assist families and individuals in escaping poverty and becoming economically self-sufficient. They also serve as an an "emergency room" for every non-medical need an individual or family may have: housing, food, heat, education. CAAS is also a switchboard for referrals to other agencies that can help people and the center of coalitions that make a stronger Somerville. In addition to serving individuals and families, CAAS runs the Head Start program in Somerville and Cambridge. Your GivingTuesday gift supports CAAS.
