Review for Community Action Agency of Butte County Inc, Chico, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went to live at the transitional shelter "Esplanade House" in May of 2005. I was homeless and I put my application in and although it took a year to be accepted.....what a blessing it was when I was accepted. I finally had a chance at creating a new life and leaving my old one behind. They showed me how I could make positive changes for the better. I moved in with 1 son and regained custody of my other son with the help of my case worker. They helped me obtain my GED, clear my past credit history and I started attending college. These are life issues I never thought possible. If your hungry, need household items and support...I received all of these blessings and more!
I eventually moved into my own home and now I volunteer my time at the Esplanade House.

On another note: Community Action Agency has a wonderful program helping with weatherizing your home. I've rec'd new double pane windows, closing up breezeways on doors and energy light bulbs installed.

CCA is a wonderful organization in so many ways...I could never thank them enough!

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

Hire more employees to help with child care and office work.
