It is with great sadness that we share the news that our passionate and loving Executive Director, Becky Weichhand, has lost her valiant battle with cancer. She passed away on November 27, 2018 surrounded by family and some of her many friends. We have lost our vibrant leader and dear friend.

A celebration of life was held in Washington, DC on November 30, 2018 at Miracle Theatre. A taping of this service may be viewed here. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to CCAI in honor of Becky’s love, leadership and lifetime commitment to a family for every child. Donations may be made at ccainstitute.org/get-involved/donate

The Board of Directors is preparing an interim leadership plan. We will share an update with you soon. The Board along with the staff remain committed to CCAI’s mission. Becky is so deeply missed and we share in grieving the loss of a tremendous individual who touched the lives of so many, and will continue to do so through her legacy of love and grace.

If the CCAI Team can be of assistance during this difficult time, please email us at info@ccainstitute.org or call (202) 544-8500.
