Empowering families and individuals
to achieve their highest potential.
Our goal is to strive to assist low-income families in becoming self-sufficient. A wide variety of programs, services, and referrals reflect this accomplishment. 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.
