Mission Statement

Three Rivers’ mission is "to work with community partners to address basic human needs of people in our service area, thereby improving the quality of life of the individual, family and community."

Description

Three Rivers Community Action is a nonprofit human service organization created by local citizens and incorporated in 1966.

Our Values: At Three Rivers, we seek collaborative solutions, lead with integrity, embrace diversity, inspire mutual trust, listen to community needs, respect the people we work with, and promote equity, empowerment and self-sufficiency.

In the professional community of human services, Three Rivers Community Action plays an important role. Three Rivers advocates for our program participants at the local, state and federal levels. The agency has developed a comprehensive networking system with various human service agencies in order to best serve our program participants. These collaborative relationships allow agencies to maximize their resources to serve families and communities. Three Rivers is an agent of change within the community, paving the way for understanding and acceptance.

Our broadest impact is on the people we serve. We fulfill dreams of homeownership for single parents, people with disabilities and diverse families. We keep seniors in their homes with home delivered meals, transportation and energy assistance. Through the Head Start program, we provide school readiness for children and a variety of services for the entire family. We strive to serve people better wherever they are in life, from homelessness to homeownership, and everywhere in between.
