Christian Community Action of New Haven is a truly amazing organization. They motivate the members of the community to help each other out while also accomplishing so much for the families in need. They truly make the most of out their resources and make a real difference in the New Haven Area. They have been achieving this wonderful work for over 40s! It is always a pleasure to make donations (clothing, food, money) since I know it is truly getting to the people who need it. Keep up the great work!

the most recent experience I had was helping CCA win a Community Foundation for Greater New Haven challenge grant by making a time sensitive donation. I was proud that my donation was able to help CCA win this grant!

I am pleased to have the opportunity to support the mission and work of CCA. I have been actively involved with the agency for twenty years. Most recently8 members of my family worked with the staff and other volunteers on the Thanksgiving Food Drive. My 7 year old Grandson has been working at this operation since he was 3. He looks forward to coming and works diligently. It is a fantastic opportunity for him to be involved with various groups in the community. i am also on the Fund Development Committee. Economics times are tough and providing needed services is a challenge.

Since my involvment with CCAa long term housing program was implemented which allows families to make critical changes in their life in order to be better parents and achieve their own goals. Also the food pantry has been reorganized to allow families to shop for appropriate food items. It is one more way of recognizing the individual dignity of the clients we serve.

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

Much of staff energy is directed to fund development. Having long term reliable funds is tantramount to achieving the goals we have set for ourselves and that respond to the needs of the community. My husband and I have a small fund with the CFGNH and this year we made a $2000 to CCA. Additionally we sponsored The Capital Steps show at Shubert because we believe in the work and the way it is performed.
