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.
Our volunteer health promoters are one of the most significant pillars of Center for Community Advocacy CCA in its efforts to provide education, orientation and health support to farmworkers and other low-income working families who want to establish committees that work to educate and improve health conditions in their neighborhoods in Salinas and Pajaro Valley.
Center for Community Advocacy’s 23rd Annual
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
Tardeada & Ben Heller Awards Banquet
Dia de los Muertos has been celebrated in Mexico since 1800 B.C. It is a time when family and friends gather together to honor those loved one’s who have passed away. It is also a time to celebrate the connection between one’s ancestors and the good work they did while on earth and the good each person is striving to do in their own lives.
Help CCA raise funds for the work that we do. Also vrlrntsyr the important role that CCA-trained neighborhood leaders play in helping our community move forward.
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
