CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY ACTION INC
December 17, 2009

I have been involved with Christian Community Action for more than 30 years. I started as a bilingual volunteer and then served on its Development Committee and then the Board. What I like most about CCA is that requires the families it helps to work hard to regain their economic independence. It basically says to these families, "If you want to improve your lives and are willing to work hard to do so, we are willing to do all we can to help." It also has evolved from an organization focused on immediate needs, such as food and shelter, to one that seeks to address the underlying causes of hunger, poverty and homelessness

More feedback

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

very welcoming and competent.

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

launch programs that would help families improve their internal dynamics and address the root causes of homelessness and poverty, such as lack of adequate education, job training, employment, personal financial management skills and leadership skills
