Essential Training and Life Skills

Here at CCA we recognize that often the acquisition of essential skills, training and education are the keys to breaking the cycle of poverty.

A family living in poverty requires more than just food and shelter; they also need to learn the skills necessary for achieving economic self-sufficiency and independence. Christian Community Action provides the knowledge and training families need in order to develop an action plan and achieve their dreams.
