We envision an organization valued and respected for its ability to create opportunites and achieve results, an organization committed to the principles of public service.
Community Action will continue to play a leadership role in the development of the counties we serve. We will advocate for the children, youth, familes, and senior adults who need our support and attention. Community Action staff will respecto our history, address current needs, and plan for our future.
