As a social service agency, Catholic Community Service (CCS) has developed the expertise and reputation necessary to provide an array of programs and services. In order to maintain quality and best practices of our programs and services, we must continually access our needs. CCS opened its doors and hearts to the poor and vulnerable families of Juneau in January 1974 with the opening of the St. Ann's Child Care Center. Six Jesuit Volunteers staffed this program. Today this agency celebrates its 38th anniversary with an $10 million budget, 210 employees and over 200 volunteers providing comprehensive services to:
Seniors and adults with disabilities through Southeast Senior Services (SESS) division;
Children and families through its Child Care & Family Resources (CCFR) division; and,
People who need in-home care and end-of-life services, through its Hospice and Home Care of Juneau (HHCJ) division.
In partnership with families and communities, the Chatham School District will provide safe and stable educational experiences built upon the uniqueness of each community, to educate students to become self-sufficient adults who will be contributing members of our diverse and changing world.
Communities In Schools is the nation's largest dropout prevention organization. The mission of Communities In Schools is to champion the connection of needed community resources with schools to help young people successfully learn, stay in school and prepare for life.
By bringing caring adults into the schools to address children's unmet needs, CIS provides the link between educators and the community. The result: teachers are free to teach, and students – many in jeopardy of dropping out – have the opportunity to focus on learning.
