CASE is diverse group of community leaders committed to raising living standards for all Arizona families through community education, increasing civic participation, leadership development, coalition building, and strengthening partner organizations.

Our Vision

People come to central Arizona to realize the American Dream. Lower housing prices, great weather, and job opportunities have drawn millions from across the United States and abroad to the Valley of the Sun.  But over the last several years, recession has made the dreams of our residents much harder to achieve. Our state and city budgets are in debt; wages have not kept up with the cost of living; and thousands of working people in central Arizona have lost their jobs, their homes, and their access to healthcare.  Working families will rebuild Arizona's economy. By joining with leaders from across the economic and cultural spectrum, we can create family-supporting jobs, quality public services, sustainable economic development, and build a culture of empowerment and belonging for all residents.  To learn how CASE helps Arizona's working families achieve their vision of the American Dream, please visit our website.
