In Memoriam: Frank Perkins


June 5, 2024

It is with profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of our friend and colleague, Frank Perkins. 

Frank started out as a Casa Central Board member, then answered the call to serve as our Vice President of Advancement. Frank’s love of people and of community was evident as he represented Casa throughout Chicago, and he will be deeply missed.  


As we receive information about his services, we will share that information with all of you. 



Juneteenth is a federal holiday celebrated annually on June 19 to commemorate the ending of slavery. On June 19, 1865, the final enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation was ordered in Texas at the end of the Civil War. Juneteenth is considered the longest-running African-American holiday and has been called America's second Independence Day.

Casa Central celebrates this important date in our country’s history and invites you to learn more about it at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History & Culture website.
