CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY ACTION INC

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.

The Great!

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

hearing reports from staff.

Ways to make it better...

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

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I have participated in Board deliberations and did what I could to help with fund-raising efforts.

I am constantly amazed by how much this organization does with so little money to help families in crisis on the road to self sufficiency.

The Great!

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

hearing from staff members about the experiences of their clients.

Ways to make it better...

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

Provide the resources it needs to carry out its mission.

More feedback

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

getting to know the board and staff members who make it work.

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

good people who believe in CCA's mission.

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

establish an endowment to help assure a stable source of funding.

Ways to make it better...

new board members had been given a tour of the programs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

inadequate resources from public and private sources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish more people knew what great work this organization does.

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.

More feedback

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.
