May is Community Action Month

posted 4/29/21 -- For nearly 60 years, a national network of Community Action Agencies has been helping American families and community overcome obstacles.

Lorain County Community Action Agency is proud to be one of more than 1,000 agencies working every day to create opportunities and transform the lives of their neighbors making communities stronger and helping families across the US thrive.

“Each May, during Community Action Month, we reflect on the impact LCCAA and our network has had on families,” said President and CEO Jackie Boehnlein.

“In this last difficult year, we have been a lifeline to hundreds of people and our dedicated staff is to be commended and celebrated along with our rich history.”

Community Action Agencies serve 99% of all American counties with life-changing services to help families achieve financial stability.

All agencies are locally controlled and represented by the private, public, and low-income sectors of the community.
