Community Action At Work

NCCAA is committed to living and fulfilling the promise of community action. In collaboration with our partners and volunteers, our Community Action Agencies have worked diligently to reduce poverty in their communities. Here’s a snapshot of our impact.

106,059

North Carolinians served

206,649

Individuals received emergency assistance from CSBG Network

37,367

Participants gained employment, increased income, or achieved living-wage employment and benefits

1.5 million North Carolinians live in poverty. We work to break the cycle that keeps them there.

  

Here's how.

Our agencies' unique tripartite board structure provides low-income individuals a seat at the decision making table alongside public and private sector representatives to identify the issues their communities face and develop solutions to resolve them.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

We give voice to the needs, concerns and stories of NC's disadvantaged and low-income citizens and demonstrate the collective impact of community action agencies to local decision makers.

ADVOCACY

Our agencies engage in continuous self-examination using a complete management and accountability process to ensure our strategies produce measurable change.

RESULTS-ORIENTED MANAGEMENT

We empower our agencies to help low-income people receive the tools and resources they need to become independent of public programs and services.

We believe lasting change is made when communities work together. We collaborate with community members, local governments, public and private partners and thousands of local volunteers to invest in holistic community-based, anti-poverty strategies.

TRAINING

We facilitate conversations and trainings that enable community members to gain a better understanding of the struggles, challenges, and issues facing disadvantaged and low-income communities and emerge better equipped to serve them.

The Promise of Community Action

Community Action changes people's lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

Poverty is Complex

No one aspires to be poor. For North Carolina’s disadvantaged communities, the cycle of poverty is inextricably intertwined with a cycle of poor health, disproportionately unfair treatment by the justice system, inadequate shelter, and limited access to education and stable employment.

Help Us End Poverty

Your investment in community-based anti-poverty strategies will strengthen families and communities, grow strong economies, and make North Carolina a better place to live, work, play, and learn for us all.
