The Winchester Star-New Foundation Gives First Gift to Community, 8 June 2002 [cached]
"More than $130,000 was given out last year by CCAP, with almost no administrative expenses," said Downing, who presented the check to CCAP Executive Director Fran Ricketts.
About 97 cents of every dollar donated to CCAP goes to services for residents of Winchester and Frederick and Clarke counties, said Ricketts.The other 3 cents goes for postage and phone bills.
With 85 volunteers, including Ricketts, CCAP has no paid staff members.
After the $5,000 grant to CCAP, the Community Foundation NSV has just under $20,000 in the bank, Shtulman said.

Fran Ricketts, C-CAP director
"We're suffering bad," said Fran Ricketts, the director of the organization.
C-CAP has received requests from 11,440 families seeking "all types of aid" in the last eight months, Ricketts said.That's 5 percent more than in 2007.
"If people would come here and listen to the stories and the hardships, they would know what we're up against," she said.
Parents come in "all the time" asking for gas money to get to a new job, Ricketts said.Without that assistance, "they wouldn't be able to get their first paycheck."
Ricketts also mentioned a Monday visitor "who was barely surviving."A problem with drainage in his home sent him into a panic, she said, because he didn't have the money to buy a bottle of Drano.
"One small thing is pushing people over the limit," she said.
C-CAP's funds have dried up drastically in the last few months, Ricketts said.
Ricketts said it has been a struggle to raise money for a new building while trying to help clients during the economic crunch.
"We can't shortchange the work we do in the community to get a building.But without a building, we can't exist," Ricketts said."It's a rough spot to be in."
She hopes donations will increase in the coming weeks so that C-CAP can eventually reopen on Fridays.
"It's hard to ask for more money, but in order for us to reach out to those who are in need, we need to ask for more help," she said."Without that, we're nothing."

Homeless, 3 April 2013 [cached]
Fran Ricketts, director of the Congregational-Community Action Project in Winchester, says she sees "on a daily basis" how homelessness can tear families apart. Sometimes the children can stay with relatives or friends, but that isn't always an option.
She commends parents who are struggling but will let Evans Home help because they "do not want the children in that type of situation" and hope the community will rally around them.
"The children need it, and it is something I think everybody feels good about when they reach out to help a child," she said.
