posted 12/23/22 -- Lorain County Community Action Agency has released its 2022 Annual Report to the Community. The report details the services LCCAA has provided to the county in the past year as recovery from the COVID-19 crisis continues.

“Our programs are a lifeline for thousands of families living through the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said President and CEO Jackie Boehnlein. “Now, more than ever, we see and accept the charge to address persistent poverty and pervasive disparities and inequities.”

Highlights of the report include:

A new home for Head Start at the Central Plaza building on Broadway Avenue in Lorain.

Record-setting service delivery in Energy Services.

A new partnership with OhioMeansJobs that provides insurance for By Car clients.

Launching of the agency’s Pathways HUB to impact infant mortality in the county.

Creation of a Pregnancy Support Services Program under Head Start.

The report also describes the results of the agency’s latest Community Needs Assessment, which was presented to the community in June 2022. Additionally, success stories in rental assistance, energy services, the agency’s bike shop and Head Start are included.

“I am understandably proud of the work of every LCCAA employee and offer the outcomes of our work as testimony of the depth to which we help people and change lives,” Boehnlein added.
