Community Action Agencies throughout Ohio and across America work with children, families, and individuals to provide opportunities that are unique to their needs. The work of our network improves lives and helps families reach self-sufficiency. 

The Promise of Community Action 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.

Just as no two communities are the same, no two Community Action Agencies are the same. Each is independently and locally operated and governed by a board of directors consisting of public, private, and low-income representatives. The collaboration and continuous assessment of community needs at each Community Action Agency provides the most value for your community because programs are customized to meet local needs. Examples of services offered include emergency services, workforce development, adult and childhood education services, housing, economic and community development, and much more.
