WHY CHOOSE US
Temporary financial assistance payments for rent/mortgage, utilities, prescription, or childcare are made on behalf of families experiencing an unexpected financial crisis or need.
Our preventative services program keeps families housed and self-sufficient beyond their crisis. Enrolled families receive supported housing, case management, Life Skills education, job readiness, and follow up services. Back to school supplies and Christmas toys are also collected in the community to give to clients in need.
CAC goes beyond the “Band-Aid” to provide emergency assistance in times of crisis. Even when situations fall outside of our scope of services, we do our best to leverage other resources to meet the clients’ existing need.
CAC provides individualized supported services.
CAC is committed to building bridges and forging relationships in our community that not only benefit society as a whole, but each individual or entity involved.
Clients are assessed and encouraged to work with a case manager to develop an individualized plan that includes goal setting and identifying strategies to leverage resources to improve their lives.
