For more than four decades, Gulf Coast Community Services Association , Inc. (GCCSA) has been on the front lines of the battlefield to reduce poverty and build economic independence in Harris County. Excellence at GCCSA is the standard, not the goal. In the wake of enormous cuts to critical programs that build and strengthen the community, the GCCSA team has risen to the occasion. We cannot stop now…for if not GCCSA, then who will advocate for the poor? Who will be responsible for mobilizing resources to assist low-income people? Who will serve as the catalyst by helping people help themselves? Who will coordinate services and fill gaps left between other service providers? GCCSA!!!
