Since 1965, CAST has been serving low-income individuals and families on the North Fork of Long Island. CAST helps struggling community members meet their basic needs in the areas of nutrition, clothing, energy, employment, and education. We provide a critical safety net for Southold Town residents from Laurel to Orient Point and Fisher’s Island. CAST is committed to moving vulnerable populations to self-sufficiency through outreach and education. We offer many programs and services, including a food pantry, sharing room with clothing and household items, ESL and computer classes, an early childhood literacy program, assistance with benefit applications, advocacy and referrals, and much more.
CAST is open Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm. We close daily from 12:00-1:00pm for lunch.
CAST’s safety net has a wide reach. We serve seniors, children, single mothers, veterans, the working poor, people living with disabilities, the homeless, and those needing emergency assistance because of an unexpected crisis. We also rely on many volunteers to better serve the community.
