History of Dorcas Ministries

In 1968, Cary resident led a group of people, Margaret Keller instigated the mission of Christian Community In Action, or CCA, with root from Matthew 25:31-45.

The mission was, and is, showing the love of Jesus Christ by serving people in need in our local community.

Enriching a Kindergarten for less privilege or lower-income children and an adult literacy program was the first projects. Dorcas Thrift Shop was organized as more need came to the awareness of the organization in 1972; that lower-income people need a location they could shop with self-worth for clothing and other household items.

Our Mission

Dorcas Ministries provides crisis aid to area residents soliciting stability and satisfaction through food and financial aid, scholarships, referral training programs, and an inexpensive thrift shop.

Cary and Morrisville are our focus area, but we can provide referral services for those regions outside our area.

Christian Community In Action is established majorly for our local neighbors facing an immediate crisis. The anchor scripture is Matthew 25:31-45, volunteers fulfill Christ’s Instruction to love our neighbors.

Christian Community in Action is a 501 (c) (3) registered non-profit organization.
