Anderson-Cottonwood Christian Assistance (ACCA)
is an association of local area churches (including Sacred Heart) who work together to assist people who live in the Anderson and Cottonwood areas. Our workers are volunteers from participating churches. We are strictly an emergency food. We base our emergency food program on need and clients’ income.
From our beginning in 1986, the volunteers at ACCA have tried to treat each client household as a special and unique case. We maintain a computerized record for each client, noting their need and circumstances, size of family, income source, costs of living and extraordinary expenses, and include comments made by the interviewer for each visit. We also make every effort to assist our clients to find other resources in our community. ACCA volunteers work with them to make knowledgeable referrals to other agencies and programs that can help with their long-term needs. We also require families using our services more than three times in a year to attend budgeting and nutrition sessions designed to help them learn how to help themselves.
Through our connections with many community partners we have helped clients with job searches and referrals, access to medical assistance, assistance with disability applications, qualifying for tax credits and tax refunds, energy assistance, and connecting with various recovery programs. Many also qualify for help with their prescription medications from national drug companies.
We are composed of churches of many different faiths but we do not proselytize for our own sectarian purposes. We seek only to serve those in need with heartfelt empathy, spiritual and emotional encouragement, and to simply be an example of Christian love and community concern for them. For more information or to become a volunteer, please call the parish office.
