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.
