Mission Statement

The mission of Total Community Action, Inc. is to reduce poverty in our community by providing human services, experiences, and opportunities that move persons from poverty to self-sufficiency.

Description

TCA addresses the needs of the poor and near-poor by providing direct assistance and the opportunity for people to better help themselves. Services include early childhood development and comprehensive family support, workforce development, family strengthening, homeless prevention, free tax preparation assistance and financial counseling. Also, the agency offers financial assistance for utilities and home energy efficiency education. TCA’s overall approach to poverty reduction builds upon almost five decades of innovative demonstrations, initiatives, and advocacy. When parents can secure a steady income and build economic assets they are better able to successfully address the physical, emotional, and educational needs of their children. Our economic security work emphasizes family economic improvement, community-level system reform, and comprehensive neighborhood transformation.
