East Cambridge Fire -- Support Your Neighbors

You may already know that CAAS provides comprehensive preschool and wraparound services to hundreds of families each year through Head Start.

You may not know that CAAS acts as a safety net for these and other families when they are in crisis -- whether that’s the threat of homelessness or a disaster taking everything.

A Head Start family of four lost their home and all their belongings in a massive East Cambridge fire that destroyed or damaged 16 buildings over the weekend.

CAAS Family Advocates have been working tirelessly with the family to provide shelter, clothing, food and transportation assistance. They are also working with the City and other agencies to coordinate supportive services.

Your low-income neighbors need your support now and throughout the year in order to emerge safely and securely from these types of events.

Your donation today will support our ongoing efforts to serve and advocate for families in their times of need.

We know you share our belief that no family should face these crises alone. Thank you for your support!
