The Inspiring Journey of CCASA

Our story begins with one man’s desire to help the people around them. Motivated by this compelling feeling, he worked for nearly a decade helping in whatever way he could but soon realized he needed to think bigger. The disparities in access to essential resources, educational opportunities, and support networks need more than moments of relief. They need a concentrated effort to bridge the gaps and uplift those who need it most.

So, in 2022, the CCASA Foundation was born. Named after the first letter of the names of his five children, our founder laid out a plan rooted in compassion and empathy to foster unity and empower our community so every individual has the opportunity to thrive, irrespective of their circumstances.

As our story unfolds, we remain guided by our founding values, ensuring that every program, initiative, and outreach effort is focused on building a community where the strength of one becomes the strength of all. Together, we strive to transform challenges into opportunities, celebrating the inherent potential within each of us and the collective power of a caring community.
