Such grants have gone to help our clients buy equipment or other services they need to live in the community or for repairs and to maintain their quality of life.

CASS is continuously seeking for funds to resurrect or cover the above roles fully. We gratefully thank sponsors past, present and future who have generously contributed to helping our targeted communities benefit enormously from our persistent drive to make care and opportunity available to those who need it most.
