May is Community Action Month
National Community Action Month in May was created by the Community Action Partnership to highlight Community Action Agencies’ role in 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.
During National Community Action Month, Lorain County Community Action Agency continues to promote the Promise of Community Action, to help people and change lives. Click here to view the stories of Community Action Agencies in Ohio.
In celebration of the end of the school year, Head Start hosted the annual Family Fun Day event. The children participated in tons of fun activities at each Learning Community and enjoyed a picnic style bagged lunch afterwards with their families.
