Community Agency for Senior Citizens, Inc. or CASC is a social services agency that provides comprehensive services to older adults living on Staten Island.  Started in 1974 by a consortium of community leaders, CASC operated under the auspices of the Community Service Society (CCS) until June 1985.  Since June 1985, CASC has been operating as a fully independent, non-profit agency.?

 

The mission of CASC is to address the needs of adults age 60 years and older, so as to assist them in leading viable independent lives in the community.  To this end CASC creates and maintains community-based social, health and related support services for older adults living on Staten Island.  CASC works individually and with other social service agencies and organizations, both on and off Staten Island, so as to ensure that a maximum number of seniors are provided with assistance. ?
