Summary

Christian Community Action (CCA) is a faith-based, nonprofit social services agency that has been healing, feeding and providing hope to families in need since 1973.

Rescue

Financial Assistance - We offer financial assistance for helping with rent and utility bills to prevent homelessness. Assistance can include partial, one-month rental assistance to full, three months of rental assistance, rental application fees, security deposits, advance payment of last month's rent, and utility deposits and payments. Food Pantry - Our Food Pantry is located at 200 S. Mill Street in Lewisville. The pantry is set up as a self-selection grocery store that is fully stocked with food, household items, and hygiene products. During the COVID-19 pandemic, CCA moved to a drive-thru boxed food distribution method to reduce risk levels. Click here for more information.

Relief

Kids Eat Free - Addresses the physical and emotional needs of children during the summer months. With the help of local school districts and other community partners, we identify and establish strategic sites that serve children who would otherwise receive free or reduced lunch at school. We ensure that children (ages 1-17) receive a nutritious lunch Monday - Friday and a weekend supply of food. In addition, we provide an opportunity for children to play games and participate in other organized activities.

Back-to-School - We ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom. We provide backpacks filled with school supplies and clothing vouchers to kids who otherwise would begin the school year without the proper essentials. The program not only physically prepares children with academic tools, but also increases overall self-esteem and mental readiness for learning.

Christmas Cheer - Low-income families struggle to meet everyday household commitments cannot begin to imagine providing Christmas cheer for their children. We provide toys, gifts, age-appropriate books and stockings filled with treats while the parents receive a devotional or Bible and the opportunity to pray with a Chaplain. All gifts are unwrapped providing parents with gift wrap, bows, and batteries to ensure that they have a fulfilling part in preparing the gifts for Christmas morning.

Golden Angels - The program provides elderly clients with numerous opportunities for social interaction, free healthy meals, access to the Food Pantry and more. Additionally, we provide holiday cheer, meals and companionship. During COVID-19, staff and volunteers have been assembling and delivering basic needs like food and hygiene kits to our most vulnerable seniors who are not able to leave their house due to the pandemic, disability, or lack of transportation.

Restoration

Training Programs - We partner with PNC Bank, Denton ISD Adult Literacy and North Texas Central Texas College to provide programs and training that families need to develop a strategic action plan to break the cycle of poverty. Programs include GED and ESL classes, vocational certification, computer skills, and financial literacy classes. Additionally, we conduct job fairs to CCA clients in need of employment, offering applications, and even on-the-spot interviews.

Spiritual Counseling - We are guided by our mission statement which begins with "In the name of Jesus Christ..." We realize that spiritual wellness is an important part of a person's life. Our Case Managers provide these services with a heavy focus on getting to know the client and forming the relationship through trust and empathetic listening, with an opportunity to share the gospel. They assist in helping a client find balance in life and reconnect or strengthen their relationship with God. Spiritual counseling also helps clients re-establish (or establish for the first time) meaning and purpose in life and be at peace.
