Christian Community Action does wonderful work helping families in crisis, supporting them on the road to self sufficiency, and enabling them to become advocates for others in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing reports from staff.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would try to find ways to make sure people who have become self sufficient to not slip back onto poverty and dependence

I continue to be impressed by what Christian Comunity Action accomplishes with a staff worth significantly more that they are paid, and despite recent cuts in state support. Ninety percent of the families completing CCA's Stepping Stones transitional housing program move on to permanent housing, well on their way to self-sufficiency.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated and enthusistic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Establish an endowment fund, raise staff salaries to competitive levels, and reinstate and expand its program of internships, vocational opportunities and training.

Volunteered bagging food for Thanksgiving distribution for at least 15 years. This has expanded and been organized to become almost effortless the last few years. But still fun! This year, volunteer groups were able to switch off on tasks so the work continued... packing about 1200 bags of food in about 5 hours, and more on Sunday. I have also been a board member for ten years. CCA has continued to meet the needs of the area residents while maintaining its core mission. Over time this has expanded from emergency food and housing, to 2-year transitional housing, to advocacy training of transitional housing and neighborhood residents. All on a relatively small budget and staff.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

increased its programs to meet needs while maintaining its core mission.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

probably not change much! Just pay the staff more appropriately, and find more projects to do
