CCIA has found that many people want to help but don’t know how. Our Community S.H.A.P.E. U.P. program addresses that problem. It is a solution-based program that provides communities with the tools they need to create positive change for themselves. We consult with communities and provide customized action plans designed to combat pressing issues and facilitate community involvement. We track each community’s progress via our website and present them with awards and incentives for consistent progress on a monthly basis. We act as both coach and cheerleader as our communities implement their action plans. We understand that true empowerment comes from within.
