Davenport, IA CASI has been selected as 1 of only 10 area Not for Profits to participate in the 2017 Challenge Grant sponsored by the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend.  The Foundation will award CASI $10,000 if we are successful in raising $10,000 in matching funds by December 31, 2017! 

We need your help.

These funds will help support services for older adults in our community.  Older adults represent one of the fastest growing demographics in our community.  The aging of the Baby Boomer generation has created a "Silver Tsunami" of older adults with growing and diverse needs.  Your donation will go directly towards our mission of helping our seniors age successfully.  After all, their today is our tomorrow!

Visit gofundme.com/2017-challenge-grant to contribute and help our Quad Cities older adults.

CASI - The Center for Active Seniors Facts:
  • CASI - The Center For Active Seniors, Inc., established in 1973, serves the needs of older adults by providing a variety of events and daily activities keeping older Quad Citians socially, mentally and physically engaged. As 10,000 baby boomers turn age 65 every day, “senior citizen” is being redefined as is the senior lifestyle. CASI’s multi -pronged approach to helping seniors age successfully includes health and wellness initiatives, social engagement opportunities, lifelong learning and volunteer opportunities to keep the older adult active and involved with our Quad Cities community.  
  • Senior Advocacy programs at CASI help older adults, their families, and caregivers with needs assessment helping partner them with other area agencies and programs keeping them in their own home for as long as is safely possible.
  • CASI’s Jane’s Place, the only adult day center in Eastern Iowa, provides a comfortable, homelike atmosphere for adults who need supervised care during the day due to stroke recovery, Alzheimer’s and dementia. Jane’s Place provides just the right amount of personal care allowing maximum independence while at Jane’s Place Adult Day Service Center. Open Monday through Friday from 7am to 4:30pm, Jane’s Place is located on the south-side of CASI, 1035 West Kimberly Road, Davenport, IA 52806.
