Christian Community Action
November 24, 2010
I have had the honor and privilege of serving on the Christian Community Action Board for 8 years, 4 as Chairman. Regardless of the ups and downs of financial fortunes, the Agency remains steadfastly focused on its goals of serving needy familes in New Haven, through its multi-unit housing facilities, its substantial food pantry, its many education- and work-focus programs to assist families rise above their current situation, and its advocacy programs in the political arena to make our elected representatives aware of the needs of those constituents without a clear voice to be heard. CCA is a true treasure in New haven.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...speaking with various tenants in the Stepping Stone program, which prepares families to move out of a housing shelter environment into a house rental/ownership environment.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...have the Agency try even harder to spread the word about what CCA does and why New Haven locals should support CCA's efforts.
