National Community Action Month
National Community Action Month in May was created by the Community Action Partnership to highlight Community Action Agencies’ role helping low-income families move out of poverty and achieve economic security. Each year, Community Action Agencies serve 20 million people in rural, suburban, and urban communities across the country through a variety of targeted programs, such as Head Start, Weatherization, job training and placement, financial education,
housing, energy assistance, and transportation.
Mid Michigan Community Action remains committed to upholding the promise of "helping people, changing lives." In fiscal year 2012, we expended nearly $10.6 million in services to assist over 20,500 households across mid-Michigan. Along the way, we partner with hundreds of other non-profits, local and state government, churches, financial institutions, schools, the for-profit sector and our communities.
Despite the ongoing challenges presented to us--a slow-growing economy, federal budget cuts due to sequestration and the need to achieve more with less, we are committed to staying the course to help those in need in our community.
