Summary of Impact

Accomplishments of 2009   Housing:   A committee in Soledad consisting of 35 families living in housing sites and trailers negotiated with the owner to successfully secure repairs to the major sewage problems and other repairs are underway.   A group of families facing severe problems, including defective electrical appliances, plumbing problems, water leakage and damage, infestation of cockroaches and mold, effectively secured an agreement from the owner to make all repairs and to keep the rent at its current rate until the repairs are met.   In an East Salinas trailer park, residents were able to negotiate with the owner to pave the common areas, improve drainage and to make other repairs.   In another East Salinas neighborhood a group of 75 families were successful in organizing a neighborhood watch as well as increasing police patrols and 24 hour surveillance cameras to combat prostitution and other illegal activities in their area.   Health   Partnership with the Behavioral Health Division of the Monterey County Health Department to increase farmworker awareness of mental health issues and to increase access to mental health services.   Launch a youth violence prevention initiative recognizing community/family safety as a housing and health issue.   Development of a more robust, farmworker-friendly evaluation system with funds dedicated to strengthening CCA's organizational capacity.   Strengthen leadership development opportunities by convening structured dialogues among farmworker leaders and community stakeholders.   Plans for 2010   CCA plans to continue the programs described above.  We anticipate reaching the same client base with our programs and we expect the same rate of participation by farmworkers.  Additionally, in April of 2010, CCA became the home of Poder Popular, a program which aims to improve the health and well-being of farmworker families and the communities where they live through leadership development and strategic alliance building.
