NEED HELP?  TAKE ACTION.  COMMUNITY ACTION!

Community Action Agencies (CAAs) can help in many ways.  Do you need help finding a job? Do you need fuel assistance?  Do you want to prepare your children for school?

Not sure what services you need?  CAA case managers are very good at understanding a family’s needs and connecting them to the right set of services.  Find your local agency below and contact them today.

By providing services that range from emergency stabilization to small business creation, CAAs help individuals and families make progress toward achieving self-sufficiency. Typical services include:

  • Homelessness prevention
  • Fuel assistance
  • Emergency food assistance
  • Head Start, and early education and care programs
  • Senior services and youth programs
  • Workforce development, job training, and education
  • Access to and training in information technology
  • Asset formation, protection, and retention
