Christian Community Action

Christian Community Action

Since our inception in 1967, CCA has been a source of hope and strength in the Hill Community of New Haven, CT. We strive to express faithful witness by providing help, housing and hope to those in need. In our sixth decade of service, CCA continues to be a force for community building and social change. 

We are dedicated to being a compassionate presence to families in crisis. Through holistic services, we strive to help people find their unique strengths and potential, by providing opportunities in our family-centered, program-focused model. We hope to see personal transformation alongside an increasingly stable social and economic situation.
