 To Our Community Partners and Volunteers:

May is National Community Action Month, and the CADA Board and Staff, on behalf of those we serve, thank you for your dedication and commitment to assisting people, changing lives, and improving our communities.  Your assistance has enabled CADA to expand resources, increase services, and enhance opportunities.

Together we have been living the Promise of Community Action. People have been assisted to help themselves and in turn have helped each other.   Lives have been changed and our communities have been improved. You have opened doors to new opportunities and led the way for the entire community.  By devoting time, energy, resources, and inspiration, you have helped to make your community and America a better place to live.

You have demonstrated how together we can turn hope into reality! On April 28, 2017 over three hundred partners joined with CADA to celebrate fifty-five years of service. CADA appreciates your partnership and support.   

The challenge for all of us is to continue to live the Promise of Community Action. Much has been accomplished, but there is still much work to do. Our opportunities are great; our challenges have changed and in some ways are even greater; many families and individuals are in need.

Together, we can continue to make a difference.  Your assistance is still needed and appreciated.
