WELCOME TO THE
Center for Community Advocacy
CCA is committed to providing opportunities, venues and programs that allow motivated residents to develop their leadership skills and potential. Whether through volunteering at CCA and community events, serving in a leadership capacity in a local community group or board or by participating in a workshop series, CCA works to provide residents with opportunities to participate, network and avail themselves of ideas and best practices for civic engagement and community involvement.
The Center for Community Advocacy’s “Helping Farmworkers Help Themselves” Big Idea project has been accepted by the Monterey County Weekly’s Monterey County Gives! program to raise funds for local nonprofits.
JOIN OUR TEAM
With the recent retirement of long-time Executive Director/Attorney-at-Law Juan Uranga, CCA is now seeking its next Executive Director to lead our programs, fundraising, communications, board engagement, finance and administration.
Center for Community Advocacy’s 21st Annual
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
Tardeada & Ben Heller Awards Banquet
From all of us associated with the Center for Community Advocacy, many thanks for your generous donation to the 22nd Annual Dia de Los Muertos Event, which took place October 29th at University Center at CSUMB.
We felt so privileged to have honored Ben Heller Award recipients Mike Antle and Rick Antle from Tanimura & Antle. We are so thrilled that you were able to support these people making a difference in our community, as well as our organization.
You should know that your support is much appreciated and certainly not taken for granted. We know these are difficult times, but times when the CCA – with its innovative approach – is more important than ever.
A Special Thank You to Our Sponsors.
What Can CCA Do?
VIVA serves as an association of CCA-trained committees to promote both health and housing related issues.
WHO DOES CCA SERVE?
CCA serves farmworkers and other low-income working families in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. We give preference to families or groups residing in substandard housing sites. Our services are provided free of charge.
I am honored to serve as the executive director of the Center for Community Advocacy (CCA), an institution dedicated to developing and sustaining neighborhood-based leadership in farmworker communities in California.Juan Uranga
