CAAS serves low-income residents in Somerville through education, advocacy, and support.


CAAS runs the Head Start and Homelessness Prevention programs. We work with Somerville residents to obtain the help they need to escape poverty and become economically self-sufficient. We also serve as a switchboard for referrals to other agencies that can help people and the center of coalitions that make a stronger Somerville community.
