Chevy Chase Community Center

Chevy Chase Center

Organizational Information

Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

The Chevy Chase Center empowers the disadvantaged population of Indiana County through love, nutrition and education.

History of Organization

In September 1969, a community of concerned citizens who wanted to combat poverty and assist Indiana County residents in need established the Chevy Chase Community Action Council, Inc. After the CCCAC was incorporated as a tax-exempt non-profit organization, the group launched a fundraiser to build a community center. Their vision soon became a reality, when in 1971 the Chevy Chase Community Center was constructed with assistance from the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Since that time, the CCCAC vision has never wavered in its commitment as members of the greater Indiana community come together always striving to provide services in response to the needs of the community as they arise. In 2000, the Center was renovated and rededicated to the community with a grant from the Indiana County Commissioners. Today, CCCAC continues to be a place where the residents of Indiana County come together to make life better for all.
