AUAF CCP Program
The Assyrian Universal Alliance Foundation has come a long way from where it began. It has expanded its programs, growing from a refugee aid service for Assyrians, to a provider of numerous community services to all. The organization has grown, but its mission remains the same: to offer services to the community and to educate people on the rich Assyrian culture.
Since 1992, AUAF qualified for the Community Care Program (CCP) government grant. This is a program for people 60 years or older who need living assistance. Working with the Department on Aging, AUAF employs caregivers to go to clients’ homes and see to their needs.
The program started with a very small group members, and now has over 2,000 clients and 1,500 caregivers. The CCP functions as the primary means of funding for much of the AUAF. This has allowed AUAF to take on new projects.
