Charitable Information

Community Action Agencies are private, nonprofit organizations governed by a board of directors whose members come from three diverse segments of the local community.

  • One-third low-income sector
  • One-third private sector
  • One-third public sector

By combining resources from the local, state, private and federal levels, Community Action Agencies enable low-income people of all ages to secure the opportunities they need to obtain and maintain economic security.

Community Action Agencies appreciate financial and non-financial support from individuals and organizations. You can aid in the battle against poverty by making a donation or volunteering your time.
