2017 Local Community Involvement
JAAC continues to partner with LA Family Housing. This organization connects participants with housing placement combined with supportive services to help thousands of people transition out of homelessness and retrain long-term housing stability. At the Annual JAAC Banquet in November 2018, members and supporters of JAAC donated toiletries, gift cards, clothing and toys which were later presented during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. In May 2017, members of the Executive board hosted a birthday party at the Cesar Chavez home, recognizing the children who celebrated their birthdays that month. They provided gifts, food and party favors for 30 participants including children and their parents. JAAC continues to donate funds toward the purchasing of furniture and mattresses for needy families at the LA Family Housing.
