  • CCSS prepares and serves 1 million meals annually.
  • 325 homeless men, women and children currently stay in one of CCSS’ shelters, transitional housing or permanent supportive housing programs.
  • CCSS operates a weekly free medical clinic and a day program for 100 adults with developmental disabilities.
  • 70 adults are currently employed in the agency’s Green Industries which marry jobs with sustainability.

Cass Community Social Services is accredited by CARF.

    As a member of a few artist groups, wonder if you would be interested in donated art to adorn the homes of the new residents?

    I think it’s amazing what you guys are doing in Detroit!!! Empty lots are feasible opportunities for growth!! I love what you’re doing with them. If this happened in Atlanta, I would save tons of money!! I’m very interested in having one myself!!
