Who We Are
Christ Child Society of Akron (CCSA) works in partnership with other organizations and agencies to give love and basic support to children lacking the basic necessities of life.
Christ Child's 300 volunteer members come from various faith traditions and walks of life, but know that all children deserve dignity if their lives are to have purpose and meaning.
Challenging Poverty One Child At a Time
Did you Know:
Today, 1 in 5 American children live below the poverty line defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as a median family income of $23,000 for a family of four. Many more live in families with higher but still inadequate family income to confer basic needs, by some estimates more than 35% of all U.S. children. The needs of today’s children are great and many face significant threats to their well-being – help us make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable among us.
Since 1887, our volunteers have been driven by faith, love and a desire to make a difference. We partner with others to build better communities. Today, our 6,000 members from 44 chapters volunteer nearly 400,000 hours and serve more than 75,000 children and their families annually.
Your support will help us grow our impact. Please join us in service or donate now.
This Chapter shall be an organization primarily dedicated to child welfare. Its motive and spirit shall be a love of Christ expressed in personal service for children and youth regardless of race or creed, to honor the childhood of Christ.
