May is National Community Action Month (NCAM)! Community Acton Agencies has been a central pivotal force in eradicating poverty for low-income families and individuals for over 50 years.

Community Action embraces the obligation to ensure that the barriers of structural racism, gender inequalities, and other inequities are addressed. Especially during these times of crisis and beyond to ensure that everyone has access to health care, well-being, and opportunity.

During NCAM, Community Action Agencies truly make the Promise of Community Action — changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live.
