Build What Matters Capital Campaign

CAST builds better lives for North Fork Families

 It’s time for CAST to have a larger, more permanent home

Since 1965, CAST has worked from small, rented spaces and has helped countless residents. It has become nearly impossible to provide services to our expanding client base from our current location. CAST is embarking on a $3 million Capital Campaign, Build What Matters, to purchase the former Southold Opera House. Our new home is critical to meet the growing need for all of CAST’s programs and services.

Goals That Drive US

For over 55 years, CAST has been building more secure lives on the North Fork. CAST is committed to replacing food, shelter and employment insecurity with hope and opportunity.

For more than a generation, many of our North Fork neighbors have counted on CAST.

Can we count on you?

Our mission is to promote self-sufficiency and provide a safety net for North Fork residents in need.

Our vision is to build a thriving community where every member is able to build a better future for themselves and their families.

Join the Effort.
Your Generosity Opens New Doors.

Please join us to Build What Matters
Together, we can open new doors and change lives

Our new home, the former Southold Opera House,
will ensure that CAST continues to be a safety net
on the North Fork, now and for generations to come.
As an added benefit to our community, this historic
building will continue to nurture the arts by hosting
performances and community events.

Your support for the Capital Campaign will improve
the lives of individuals across the community,
ultimately benefiting businesses, schools,
organizations, and farms across the North Fork.
