The goal of CAN's stabilization programs is to help families meet their basic needs so they can create brighter futures for themselves.

"They take care of us!" - Marcia

Support & Advocacy

CAN assists families in the specific communities the organization is located with DTE shut-off, eviction prevention, and navigating DHHS.


Depending on the situation, we can also refer families to relevant service providers/resources.

CAN also serves as an advocate for community members, helping empower the voices of those in our communities to bring about positive change on a systemic level.
