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!
You can make a difference in the lives of others in our community! Join the hundreds of volunteers who help our neighbors in need in Sandy Springs and Dunwoody. Volunteer opportunities are available in all areas at CAC, find one that’s right for you!
You can help our neighbors who are experiencing difficult times due to the impact of COVID-19. Make a donation to help a family who lost wages stay in their home. Give food or volunteer at the food pantry, thrift shop, donation center and more.
The Georgia State Legislature and Fulton County both honored Tamara Carrera, CAC’s recently retired CEO for her leadership, vision and inspiration in leading CAC for more than 20 years.
