Northern California has shown its resiliency repeatedly since 2018. We don’t need to tell you all that we’ve experienced, but we do want to tell you about the good that’s happened in our community.
By coming together, we were able to make some great things happen. Our mission at Butte CAA is to lift others up and out of poverty, but everyone in our community plays a part as well through volunteering, donating, and spreading the word about our programs. Let’s look at some of those achievements together.Read More
Wow what a year 2020 was! We, as an agency, were put to work in ways we couldn’t have imagined in life before a pandemic. But now that we are here in 2021, we are ready to help you, our North State community, by providing you with tangible resources and supplies when in need.
Looking Ahead with Hope
We are hopeful that this year will be better. For us, hope is non-negotiable. It’s how we operate. Since we are in the business of helping our community members who are experiencing tough times, we are actively supplying hope in forms like boxes of groceries or ensuring that power bills get paid.
Though we are ready to meet the critical needs we know of, we can’t tell the future or know what may happen in the next 12 months. If you would like to help our efforts financially or by volunteering, we welcome your interest and there are many areas to get involved.Read More
