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

Rating: 5 stars  

How can I describe all that Community Action Agency of Butte County has done for me. My first exposure to CAA was when they provided my childcare for my young son while I attended the Touchtone program in Chico, CA. The Touchtone program is day treatment for mothers that are recovering from substance abuse, of which I was one.

While I was still attending Touchtone I was receiving cash-aid and that required that I work at least twenty hours a week at a local location. I can't tell you how lucky I am that my cash-aid worker set me up with CAA! So I had always wanted to learn office work, but basically had no experience or skills when I began my training in December 2008.

I spent the next two years training in the office and learning many skills from something as simple as the correct way to answer the telephone to computers and all of the office equipment. I just can't say how much I appreciate all of the patience and dedication that everyone from the Executive Director on down have shown me over the years. After two years I was hired as a full time employee!

No one has ever made me feel like I was less than an equal because of my rocky past. I now work in the fiscal office and have learned a whole new set of skills. My self-confidence has always been low, but everyone in the fiscal office has taken the time to train me and they have confidence in me and that makes we want to do more ! I am now completely self sufficient and a good role model for my son.

Helping people. Changing lives.

That is exactly what Community Action Agency of Butte Co., Inc. has done for me. Changed my life. I could not be more proud of my involvement with this agency. I also am very thankful to that county worker that first paired me with Community Action Agency of Butte Co. Inc.

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