National Community Action Month

National Community Action Month in May was created by the Community Action Partnership to reinforce Community Action Agencies' role helping low-income families achieve economic stability. 

During National Community Action Month, Community Action Agencies truly make the Promise of Community Action—to help people and change lives—come alive by hosting events that help put a "face" on the families living in poverty and the dedicated individuals who are helping them escape it.  Success stories are honored and personal achievements are recognized.  Some governors and mayors even proclaim May "Community Action Month" in their states and cities.

Community Action Agencies also use National Community Action Month to call attention to poverty-related problems.  As Community Action Agencies are showcasing their programs, they are also giving local residents-many who are unaware of the poverty in their communities-a first-hand look at the struggles low-income families face and how Community Action programs help these families achieve financial security.

Please see our calendar of events for ways CCA will be celebrating!
