About Community Action
“Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.”
Community Action Agencies are federally designated as the frontline resource for people living in poverty, providing direct services and support for education, employment and family support services for low income families. In addition to the direct services they provide, Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are leaders in promoting community economic development through community partnerships and inter-agency collaborations.
