The COVID-19 economic crisis threatened people from all walks of life with homelessness as jobs and livelihoods were suddenly lost. At the height of the crisis CAC was receiving 4 times as many requests for assistance than before COVID. In 2020 and into 2021 CAC provided more than $2 million in rent assistance to help as many of our neighbors as possible stay in their homes!
Together we helped prepare 1,000 local children for the upcoming school year with backpacks and school supplies! Thanks to generous grants, individual and group donations CAC provided local children with the tools they need to learn. Children from about a dozen area schools received backpacks custom packed with essential supplies per school and grade.
CAC is pleased to announce our 2021 Annual Meeting video reporting from four CAC locations in the community! Watch CAC’s CEO Francis Horton from the construction site of our newest branch in South Sandy Springs coming later this year! Plus reports from the Dunwoody branch, thrift shop and CAC’s Hightower Trail office!
Please join us in welcoming our new CEO Francis Horton! CAC’s Board of Directors is pleased to share the appointment of Mr. Horton, following in the footsteps of Tamara Carrera upon her retirement.
Upscale Thrift will close on Wednesday, Nov. 24 at 12:30 pm for the holiday weekend, reopening on Monday, Nov. 29.
