The COVID-19 economic crisis has threatened people from all walks of life with homelessness as livelihoods have suddenly been cut off. Since the crisis began CAC has been receiving 4 times as many requests for assistance than before COVID. CAC is working to provide rent assistance to help as many of our neighbors as possible stay in their homes. In 2020 CAC provided more than $2 million in rent assistance!
CAC services are focused on providing basic needs of food and rent assistance to those most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Click here to request assistance and for updated food pantry hours.
You can help our neighbors who are experiencing difficult times due to the impact of COVID-19. Make a donation or spearhead an online group funding drive to help prevent homelessness. Donate to the food pantry or volunteer on location or remotely from home.
Sign up now for the next session of ESOL and computer classes, both begin in January! The classes are conducted online during the COVID-19 pandemic. CAC’s free adult education classes focus on enhancing life skills and improving job skills. Or, join us as a volunteer and teach a class!
Tamara Carrera, who has led the Community Assistance Center since 1997, announces that she plans to retire in the coming months. Carrera plans to remain on board until a new CEO is in place.
This year CAC’s largest annual benefit changed gears and Vintage Affair went Live yet Virtual! The new format was a big hit with 266 guests at 81“home islands” across the community and raised more than $210,000 for CAC!
