Christian Fellowship and Service
CIA's founder, Bobby Trimble, first started this program in 1972 in Midland, Texas, as a result of a lesson he was teaching to a group of young men in his Sunday School Class. He realized he had been led to a segment of our society which is, for the most part, overlooked. Local, state, and federal government programs are "out there" for low-income young couples and children, and yet, there are virtually no programs to help the elderly and disabled who are living on fixed incomes. Think of it - trying to live on Social Security or disability anywhere from $500 - $800/month! Imagine paying for a roof, plumbing, wheelchair ramp, etc., while trying to pay for prescriptions and food on this kind of income.

Christmas in Action Greater Cleburne organized in 1999, with our first Work Day taking place in 2000. Each year we perform most of our projects during the Community Work Day, usually the first weekend of April. Applications are accepted September 1 - November 30 for the following April. We also accept emergency applications throughout the year for emergency repairs such as gas leaks, electrical hazards, wheelchair ramps, or other conditions that make the home unsafe for occupants.

Our mission is to put Christian values "in action", not just talk about them! To date, over 300 homes in Johnson County have been repaired by Christmas in Action. Our goal this year is to repair 50 homes.
