Mission Statement

The primary purpose of Schuylkill Community Action shall be to coordinate and focus all available resources upon the needs of low-income Schuylkill County residents enabling them to obtain adequate, affordable housing and secure opportunities to achieve self-sufficiency.

Description

Schuylkill Community Action is a private, non-profit organization incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Schuylkill Community Action was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1965. It was formed as a result of the combination of two (2) community action grant programs operated by the City of Pottsville and the County of Schuylkill. The agency went by the name "The Economic Opportunity Cabinet of Schuylkill County" until it officially changed its name to "Schuylkill Community Action" on July 1, 2000.

Schuylkill Community Action is currently the primary organization for addressing the needs of low-income residents of Schuylkill County. SCA still utilizes the Community Services Block Grant Program as its core funding source, and employs those funds to leverage a wide range of federal, state, local and private resources.

Services include: Emergency Services, Employment Services, Food Pantry Network, Housing & Mortgage Counseling, Housing Programs, Outreach Program, Tax Prep Assistance, Utility Assistance and Weatherization Services.
