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.

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!
