What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Food System Development

Occurs through our organizing and leading the area’s Food Policy Council, whose aim is to optimize our local food system through maximizing self-sustainability and minimizing food insecurity.

Population(s) Served

Helps families and individuals either remain or quickly become housed through providing rental assistance, catching-up on past-due rent, security deposits, utility deposits, utility payments, moving costs, life skills and tenant training and counseling, housing search and placement, mediation and outreach to property owners, and credit repair – all on an as-needed basis as determined by client evaluation and screening.

Population(s) Served

An exciting affordable housing development project which is in the early stages, incorporating structurally innovative and environmentally friendly construction techniques. The project prototype is expected to be completed in 2011.

Population(s) Served

Feeds 18-20% of Del Norte County residents every year. In 2009 we supplied 201 tons of food, 35% of which went to children, 22% to documented disabled, 13% to seniors on fixed-incomes, and 25% to the homeless. On-site distribution at CAN’s headquarters is offered three days per week. We also supply food to partner agencies for distribution in more distant parts of our service region.

Population(s) Served

This pending community farm has been planned via a USDA grant.  To be commercially based, it is expected to aid our community gain food self-sufficiency while also stimulating our local economy and workforce.
