Christian Community Aid (CCA) is a non-profit community service organization that has been delivering services for over 50 years.
CCA was established in 1965 to “provide help to the needy through a trained social worker and voluntary helpers” in an area “two miles around Eastwood Methodist Church”. A legacy of £1300 given to the Church to support such work was used to launch CCA. Within 18 months CCA was receiving support from every denomination in the Eastwood-Epping district.
From these small beginnings CCA has now grown into a multi-service organisation providing community services to multiple local government areas in Sydney.
CCA is governed by a volunteer Board committed to applying the highest level of ethical practice to all aspects of CCA’s organizational governance. The professional knowledge and experience of our Board members ensure that CCA fully complies with its legal, financial and fiduciary obligations.
We acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining a society that respects diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences.
2. Strengthening Community
CCA facilitates individuals and communities to support and sustain each other.
Integrity underpins CCA’s service provision. We act honestly and ethically. We are trustworthy and accountable in all interactions. We are custodians of resources for the benefit of the community.
4. Social Justice
CCA is inspired by Christian values of love, care, service, inclusion and valuing the individual. Our work is underpinned by a commitment to advancing the well-being of individuals, communities and our society as a whole. Everyone has a right to economic, political and social opportunities.
CCA practices collaboration and participation.
CCA is an independent organisation committed to being open, transparent and autonomous.
