“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.”
This is the Promise of Community Action. This pledge is posted at community action agencies (CAAs) across the country (over 1,000 in number!) and recited at convenings, trainings, and more. Why? To keep fresh in our minds the holistic goals of our agencies and our networks — to remember that helping each person improves the whole community.
