Ballston Area Clergy Association Community Assistance Fund

The Ballston Area Clergy Association is a ministry of four churches in the village of Ballston Spa: Baptist, Episcopal, Methodist & Presbyterian.

In April of 2009, this Community Assistance Fund was created to pool our resources to better serve families in times of financial crisis. The fund serves families living within the Ballston Spa School District by helping pay for rent, utilities, car repair, and more. In 2015 we received and distributed over $10,000.

All sponsoring churches have application forms available. Forms are submitted to the church on call which rotates every 2 months. BACA application form 2017 (updated July 2017)
