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.

1.5 million North Carolinians live in poverty. We work to break the cycle that keeps them there.
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.
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.
Our agencies engage in continuous self-examination using a complete management and accountability process to ensure our strategies produce measurable change.
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 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.
