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.


Christian Community Action's Crisis Management Services are designed to meet the immediate, critical needs of families or individuals during crisis. This is done through services designed to assist families in overcoming challenges of changes to the family structure, unemployment or under-employment, major illness, or any situation that limits a family's stability. These services seek to provide support through the Food Pantry, rent and utility assistance to prevent homelessness, and relevant community referrals.

CCA seeks opportunity to preserve the dignity of our community members in need and their families. We work to ensure that one's experience at CCA's Food Pantry is conducive to just that. CCA's Food Pantry is a fully-stocked self-selection grocery store that serves more than 650 families every week.


Here at Christian Community Action, we additionally understand that the vulnerable populations made up of children and senior community members living below the poverty line, require special support. While seeking to provide ongoing support to the households in which these community members reside, we're committed to providing additional relief services. I.e. Kids Eat Free Summer Program, Back-to-School, Christmas Cheer and Golden Angels (Senior Support Group).


Christian Community Action's Restoration services provides for the educational needs of our community through essential life skills, job readiness and spiritual counseling programs. Through careful case management, CCA's holistic approach from rescue to transition helps families in need achieve self-sufficiency by offering a "hand up" instead of a hand-out.
