The purpose of Community Action Month is to raise awareness of community action and its mission.
Whether our neighbors are experiencing a temporary setback or have been priced out of affordable housing – too many struggle to achieve a good quality of life. Despite America’s economic recovery, nearly 40 million of us are still living in poverty and even more are just one missed paycheck away from hardship. We believe everyone should be able to take care of their families and have an equal opportunity at success.
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 enter community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
Community Action Agencies like ARVAC connect individuals and families to approaches that help them succeed -- including high quality education programs for children, job training for adults, stable and affordable housing for families, utility assistance for seniors, and so much more.
Join us in recognizing our community organizations and efforts that make it possible to assist and give back to our communities.
