2021 marks the 57th year since the Community Action Network was established to help American families and communities overcome obstacles to poverty. Over 1000 agencies across the country are working every day to create opportunities and transform the lives of their neighbors making communities stronger and helping families across the US thrive.
This year, Central Kentucky Community Action Council, a proud member of the Community Action Network, celebrated 54 years helping families throughout Marion, Washington, Larue, Hardin, Meade, Nelson, Grayson and Breckinridge County. Each May, during Community Action Month, we reflect on the impact CKCAC and our network have had on families with immediately needed services such as shelter and food, and also long-term solutions like education and job placement.
During the Marion County Chamber Luncheon in May, with nearly 100 in attendance, the work of Central Kentucky Community Action was spotlighted. May was also the perfect month to reflect on the many accomplishments of our organization during the COVID-19 pandemic with social media posts.
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. We are proud of our communities’ participation in the development and oversight of our programs, their engagement helps us to be more effective in our approach by determining what our area needs.
More to come………. .much more……………..
