The Community Action Program provides rent / utility assistance, food boxes, career services, cooking on a budget, community garden, homeless prevention, and pre-natal services. The Senior Action Program provides social activities, congregate meals, and home delivered meals.
I was not working and had nothing , this organization's helped me. They also did not make me feel like a second class citizen.
I was in tears when I came and asked for food , the ladies working the food distribution desk are so nice and polite.
they tried to find me food that I could eat, because I have HBP. When I got home I was so glad that I could eat for another month. I am a senior , work is hard to find. I am going to volunteer to work there and help out. I want to give back because I know they will be a blessing to me until I am able to retire/ or get a job what ever comes first.
