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.
