The seven Community Action Agencies in the state provide essential services to every region and all 53 counties. Community Action Agencies are governed by uniquely structured boards of directors whose members derive from diverse segments of the community-low-income, private, and public sectors. By combing resources-local, state, private and federal, agencies enable low-income people of ages to secure the opportunities they need to obtain and maintain self sufficiency.
The Community Action Food Pantry provides food baskets to income qualified clients and families in need. Clients need to call the CAP office at 258-2240 to make an appointment. The following information needs to be provided:
