It has been another busy yet successful year at Community Action House.

We’ve continued to provide life-changing programs and services that meet the needs of our community, including our many food programs, educational classes, and EPIC empowerment program. We’ve created a new inviting atmosphere at the General Store where revenue continues to support agency services. In October, we responded to developing needs in the community by creating a street outreach program, designed to engage homeless individuals and families and help them obtain housing.

We invite you to review this snapshot of the work that we do on a daily basis. The work is challenging.  The work is fun. We love it. Unfortunately, the work is not done. We still have hungry people to feed. We still have families struggling with homelessness. We need your help. Without the support that you and others in our community choose to give, none of this would be possible. Thank you for helping us become a place that puts hope to action. Come join us by continuing the many generous investments of time, talent, and financial gifts that have built Community Action House to be a place that brings hope to our community. We’d love to hear from you.

In gratitude,

The Staff and Board of Community Action House
