Community Action Partnership National Impact Report
The Community Action Partnership is a national hub that links the nation’s 1,000+ Community Action Agencies (CAAs) to each other – and to leaders looking for solutions that connect Americans to greater opportunity.
Throughout this report, you’ll discover how Community Action works, from financial coaching services that help Michigan families become stable to whole family approaches that help kids and parents in Maryland thrive. You’ll read about employment and enrichment programs that support Georgia families and support services that give Californians a safe place to live. You’ll see how Community Action Agencies all across the country are responding to local needs. For instance:
- CAAs helped tens of thousands of pre-school children build the skills they needed to succeed in school, and helped more than two million people, including seniors, make their homes more energy efficient and lower their energy bills
- An Ohio agency partnered with its county to make sure community members struggling with addiction received fast, quality support
- Volunteers for a Kansas agency spent 7,000 hours improving the community for their neighbors
The need has never been greater. Neither has our resolve. We’re challenged to create solutions that don’t just help people stay afloat but build lives of stability, dignity, and, whenever possible, prosperity. And we will rise to that challenge.
