Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.


"If poverty is a disease that infects the entire community in the form of unemployment and violence, failing schools and broken homes, then we can't just treat those symptoms in isolation. We have to heal that entire community."
-- President Barack Obama

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have enough; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."       
-- Franklin Delano Roosevelt
