Community Assistance Center (CAC)

Since 1987, The Community Assistance Center (CAC) has played a vital role in the cities of Sandy Springs and Dunwoody in preventing hunger and homelessness by providing assistance for basic needs such as help with rent and utilities, food and clothing, and actively engaging clients to work towards greater self-sufficiency through education and job tools. CAC is a cornerstone of the human services network in the northern Perimeter area. It is largely a volunteer run organization with more than 300 regularly scheduled volunteers making a difference in the lives of neighbors in need!

Members of Kairos are actively involved with CAC, volunteering regularly and on an occasional basis. For more information about CAC and Kairos, contact Cece Webster at
