Mission Statement

Our mission is to use innovative strategies that mobilize low-income people and the broader community to build assets that prevent poverty, create equality and strengthen our social fabric.

Description

Building on its rich history and commitment to providing for the needs of low-income people in Duluth, DCAP was reborn as Community Action Duluth in 1999. Community Action Duluth's new board of directors recognized that many services addressing the effects of poverty such as homelessness, hunger and clothing were solidly in place in the Duluth community. The board wanted to address poverty in a different way and decided to focus on helping individuals and families move out of poverty. This innovative approach led to programs that address building economic security, family development and changing public policy. Today, Community Action Duluth's long-range goal is to engage the community by building partnerships that will develop a blueprint for ending poverty in Duluth.

Would you recommend Community Action Duluth?

by Justin L. (July 8, 2010)
I have taken their Getting Ahead Class this past year. Highly recommended for those who are in poverty and are seeking networks of people to work on getting people out of poverty
