Center for Community Advocacy

Mission

CCA is committed to providing opportunities, venues and programs that allow motivated residents to develop their leadership skills and potential. Whether through volunteering at CCA and community events, serving in a leadership capacity in a local community group or board or by participating in a workshop series, CCA works to provide residents with opportunities to participate, network and avail themselves of ideas and best practices for civic engagement and community involvement.

The Big Idea

Center for Community Advocacy (CCA) helps build leadership within the community, working side by side with farmworkers and their families to help improve their living conditions, find affordable housing and access health services and resources. The need for these efforts has escalated with Covid-19, especially since farmworkers do not have the option to shelter in place, instead working long hours and putting their safety and health on the line to help feed our community. CCA has been helping by delivering masks to farmworkers for their protection, and providing them with health information about prevention and detection of symptoms. Farmworkers face many challenges to be able to provide a decent living for their families, and Covid-19 has increased the stakes.

A big thank you to CCA and their leaders for the information shared and for caring about workers like us. Thank you for reminding us about the importance of prevention and what we can do to avoid the spread of COVID-19. CCA as an organization has always cared for farmworkers bringing us information and resources.
