The Promise of Community Action:

Our Vision…FOR THE PEOPLE WE SERVE
Individuals and families see themselves as vital components of their community and participate in the on-going agency planning. As individuals and groups, they have the power and ability to make and affect change in their lives, their families and communities. All individuals and families have the same opportunities to meet their basic needs and have the knowledge through education to access available resources.
