The Chevy Chase Community Action Council, Inc. (CCCAC), commonly referred to as the Chevy Chase Community Center, is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded in Indiana County Pennsylvania in 1969.
To provide a venue for community members and the greater Indiana County as we offer support and services to assist residents who live in poverty by ensuring they have access to vital human services, food, education and recreation programs that will improve their quality of life and enhance the greater community.
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 became a reality in 1971 when the Chevy Chase Community Center was constructed with assistance from the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
In 2000, the Center was renovated and rededicated to the community with a grant from the Indiana County Commissioners.
In 2016, spearheaded by the efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Rodney Rudduck the center’s kitchen received a much needed renovation to a commercial kitchen.
