Volunteering with CCDN can be quite rewarding. Because of our mission, we work with a variety of individuals, youth, families, groups, and community partners to help bring services to those in need. Volunteering your time with CCDN can be an exciting opportunity to assist a Community and Family Organization focused on sustainable empowering communities living in inner cities by supporting specific partners and projects.
Our focus is on improving the economic state in communities, reducing generational recidivism in poverty, and empowerment through financial stability by providing access to a better quality of health, family development, education, and community resources.
