About the Community Assistance Center
Community Assistance Center (CAC) serves families and individuals in the Sandy Springs and Dunwoody communities. CAC’s services are designed to prevent homelessness, help meet basic needs and promote self-reliance. The Center provides food, clothing and emergency financial assistance to residents facing unexpected crisis due to loss of income such as job loss, illness, death in the family, etc. CAC provides adult education to enhance job and life skills to promote self-sufficiency. CAC also offers youth programs such as school supplies and holiday gifts for children who otherwise may go without.
CAC has been serving our neighbors in need since 1987 and is supported by 27 member congregations of all faiths, the City of Sandy Springs, Fulton County, the United Way, the City of Dunwoody, DeKalb County, local businesses, residents, schools, civic groups and individuals. Hundreds of volunteers operate all areas of the center from client interviewing to the food pantry to the thrift shop. CAC typically serves more than 7,000 individuals from 3,700 households a year. CAC has touched 24,000 families in our community since it was founded.
Vintage Affair is the largest annual benefit for CAC raising around $325,000 a year! All proceeds support assistance programs that make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need and in our community.
