At CVCAA we are all about the “Action” part of Community Action, but we often get asked how members of our community can get involved. So to make it easier, we’re providing a round up of all the ways you can get involved to make a difference right here in the Concho Valley to end the year on the right foot.
Every month, agencies from across our community come together to provide essential services for our homeless neighbors. It’s an entire day of service and caring in action. We are always looking for volunteers to serve meals, handle intake and help our neighbors find what they need. On December 19th, we’ll be holding our last Navigation Day of the year and we are going to end the year BIG. Presents, cocoa, and fun surprises will be in store for our most vulnerable neighbors. Join us for the whole day or just a few hours.
When: Dec. 19th 9am to 4pm
Where: First Presbyterian Church, 32 N. Irving St.
Into the Warmth
When the weather drops, it can be dangerous outside. That’s when we activate Into the Warmth, an overnight warming shelter for our homeless neighbors. We are looking for volunteers to help provide overnight supervision and donations of food and supplies.
When: Starting now and running through the last cold snap of the year
Where: Carl Ray Johnson Rec Center, 1103 Farr St. or Donate at our office 133 W. Concho Ave, Suite 301

Neighbors like Carroll. Carroll is elderly and has been unable to get around due to complications from Covid. She depends on her Social Security check to survive, but there is rarely enough to last the month. CVCAA is able to help Carroll stay in her home through our utility assistance program.
"Thank you to CVCAA and all of its people and sponsors for the help given to me the past few years. Your help with my electric has been a lifesaver and a blessing for me."
Thanks to generous donors like you, we can continue to support neighbors like Carroll so they can live in safe homes. Monthly donations allow us to support our neighbors all year long.
