Did you know that the Community Assistance Center provides short-term, emergency assistance to residents of Sandy Springs and Dunwoody, Georgia? They assist individuals and families experiencing unexpected financial crisis from situations such as a job loss or other reduction of income, illness, medical emergency, divorce or fire.
The CAC can provide emergency financial assistance for a portion of rent, mortgage or utility bills to help prevent eviction or loss of utility services. They also provide food and clothing. The center offers adult education to improve job and life skills as well as youth programs for summer, return of school and holiday seasons.
