ORGANIZATION: COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN SERVICE AGENCY INC

Got a little spare time and wish to make a difference? Want to get involved helping those in need? CCSA has a need for volunteers to help distribute food and clothing. We also need special people to help with client intake - greeting our neighbors and assisting them in obtaining the help they need. CCSA strives to keep our environment safe. Masks are mandated when volunteers are making contact with the public at large. CCSA also has volunteer jobs which do not require people-to-people contact. If you would like to apply to be a volunteer please call CCSA @ (858) 274-2271

If you are a nurse, our location at Pacific Beach is always searching for volunteer nurses to provide basic first aid and give referrals to those who are in need.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Community Christian Service Agency, an ecumenical Christian agency, is "to provide emergency services to individuals and families in need in San Diego County, including food, clothing, and referrals, and where practicable, counseling to assist in their transition to self-reliance."

Description

CCSA was founded in 1972 by seven churches in the local ministerial association and obtained its nonprofit 501C-3 status in 1973. During 49 years of service, CCSA has grown to include 31 member churches in the Clairemont, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, and University City areas of San Diego. CCSA currently has three paid staff members and has utilized hundreds of volunteers to deliver its services. The agency is supported by its member churches, hundreds of individual donors, businesses, small grants, and various fundraising efforts.
The agency operates two service centers. The main site in Clairemont serves primarily low-income individuals and families, and the Pacific Beach Center focuses its services primarily on the needs and challenges of the growing population of the homeless. Each year, the agency has more than 25,000 service contacts with people coming in for food, clothing, and other basic necessities of life. CCSA is open to anyone in San Diego County that needs help. Combined, the two centers serve up to 2000 people each month with the Pacific Beach Center serving as many as 150 homeless singles per week.
