In 2019 CEAC served more people than ever! With the help additional funders such as CERF, which was especially important to respond to emergency needs of those financially impacted by the 416 Fire.
*We provided $167,880 in emergency grants to people having a financial emergency in our community.
* 224 families were funded- 63% for housing
* 31 families impacted by the 416 Fire
*27% of applicants are seniors living on a fixed income.
Remember that we are 100% community funded- local dollars helping local people. This means that your pocket change into the Salvation Army Kettle,
on your electric bill and fundraising with your church all help those who do not have support in a time of need.
