A Letter from CCSA’s President

We appreciate your patience as we navigate through these uncertain times. Our goal is to keep our staff and community safe, continue business operations in service of our mission and do our part to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Staff will be able to assist you during CCSA’s regular business hours. Please review the specific department you are trying to reach for the correct email and phone number to contact. Contact information is below for families, providers, and other departments at CCSA.

We will continue to post COVID-19 resources and news. You will find information regarding public health and safety, ECE policy from DHHS, food resources, online educational tools to help in the classroom and the home and more.

The health and well-being of our staff is of the utmost importance to us, particularly during the complex and evolving COVID-19 outbreak. As the situation continues to change, CCSA will continue to care for our people and serve our partners, particularly those who continue to be on the front lines of caring for children and families.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work through this evolving public health emergency.
