For over 45 years, Christian Community Action (CCA) has been healing, feeding and providing hope to families and individuals in need throughout North Texas. CCA is a comprehensive social services agency dedicated to providing rescue, relief and restorative services that aim to help a client transition from crisis to self-sufficiency. What began in 1973 as a small bible study group of seven has become the largest nonprofit agency providing homelessness prevention, hunger relief and long-term restorative services in Denton County.

CCA's services address our Angels' (clients') immediate and ongoing needs throughout their financial crises. Additionally, CCA works with each client to identify and offer that which is necessary to move them to a place of greater stability. Services include a minimum of eight weeks of access to our client-choice food pantry, critical rental and utility assistance, essential life skills courses, seasonal income relief programs, and emotional and pastoral counseling. Last year, CCA provided services to over 5,500 North Texans in need through the following ways:

Prevented Hunger: CCA distributed over 1.5 million meals and assisted 4,164 individuals through CCA's Food Pantry; provided 44,712 summer weekend meals to low-income children through Bags of Blessings.
Averted Homelessness: Helped 1,455 individuals avoid evictions, foreclosures and/or utility disconnections through financial assistance.
Provided Hope to Families: 1,405 children received gifts through CCA's Christmas celebrations; 697 children from low-income families received brand new outfits and a backpack through Back-to-School; 900 clients received spiritual care or counseling to provide peace during their times of crisis.
Served Seniors: Through CCA's Golden Angels program, 120 seniors were provided with over 6,000 fresh lunches and 150 hours of fun and fellowship.
CCA helps approximately 100 families and individuals across North Texas with their most urgent needs each week-people like Maria, Peter and their children. Maria and Peter were struggling to make ends meet when the unthinkable happened-Maria was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and could no longer work. With Peter also out of a job, they were suddenly in a crisis. That's when Maria and Peter found CCA.

Thanks to generous donors like YOU, we were able to ease their suffering and provide much needed food along with housing assistance and other baby items including diapers. It is a great privilege to come alongside Maria and Peter, to help with their most basic needs so they could focus on Maria's treatment and recovery.

A few years ago, Erica suddenly and unexpectedly found herself divorced with full custody of her two small children. Even though she worked 60 hours a week in law enforcement, the expenses associated with raising two kids as a single mom created a substantial hardship for Erica and her struggling family. She was behind on the rent, her utilities were about to be disconnected, and she needed groceries to feed her children. Denied assistance by other agencies, Erica was in a desperate situation.

"CCA was so good", Erica told us. "They helped me pay my rent, they paid my light bill, and they set me up with three months of groceries from the Food Pantry. Their help was just enough to carry the kids and me through the hard times."

Erica is now remarried. She and her husband operate a restaurant and catering business which they use as a vehicle to contribute to local causes. They have hosted fund-raisers for local schools as well as for CCA. Recently they led an effort to raise money for the family of a crime victim in the Flower Mound area.

"CCA gave to me when I needed help." Erica recently said. "I want to give something back. I want to make a difference."
