The "What" Behind Our Mission


CAYA currently offers the following services:

Food Pantry: Our pantry is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 am – 12:30 pm. Each family can receive food assistance one time per month.

Emergency Food Assistance: For those who are unable to come to our office, groceries are delivered to homes when people call for food.

Financial Assistance: When funds are available, this is a means by which we help people toward rent, gas, and other utility bills.

Bible Study and Counseling: Although we desire to meet the physical needs of those we serve, we are compelled to address the spiritual and emotional needs of all who come our way.

Financial Counseling: Both the materially poor and the materially non-poor struggle with healthy stewardship of their financial resources. It is our goal to help people become good stewards of all that God has given to them.

Clothing Closet: The closet is designed to assist families to stretch their clothing budget and to help women who are entering or the workforce and who need professional attire for a job interview or to go to their job.

Furniture & Household Items: We regularly receive used furniture, electronics and household items that we turn around and give away to those who need them.

Summer Lunch Program: We prepare and deliver sack lunches to children who would normally receive a free or reduced price lunch during the school year.
