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.
