Community Assistance center

DUNWOODY, Ga. — Community Assistance Center (CAC), an organization that works to prevent homelessness and hunger, will open a new branch office at 5 Dunwoody Park, Suite 113 in Dunwoody this November. 

CAC provides basic needs to prevent homelessness and hunger and promotes self-sufficiency. The new Dunwoody branch office will help families who live in that area, particularly those with no car, access CAC services.  

CAC expects to serve about 400 families a year at the new office. The office is scheduled to be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. 

At the Dunwoody branch office CAC will:

• Evaluate clients applying for assistance for basic needs: financial, food and clothing.

• Register clients who qualify for seasonal programs: Adopt-a-Family, Tools for School and Summer Lunches for Kids

• Have a Client Choice Food Pantry on the premises

• Provide information on other CAC services such as adult education classes, the thrift shop and free tax return preparation.

CAC is seeking volunteers for the Dunwoody branch office. People interested in volunteering can contact CAC’s Volunteer Coordinator Nolan Feintuch at volunteer@ourcac.org.

This will be CAC’s second branch office. The first CAC branch office was opened in 2018 in south Sandy Springs at 120 Northwood Dr, Suite 234. CAC’s headquarters for assistance, adult education and the business office remains at 1130 Hightower Trail in Sandy Springs. 

The CAC Food Pantry and Upscale Thrift Shop are located at 8607 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. CAC serves neighbors in need in the cities of Sandy Springs and Dunwoody and the area served by Hightower Elementary School in Doraville.
