An exciting April is coming up with many positive programs and activities, but I am going to look into the Central Kentucky Community Action Council (CKCAC) crystal ball for an awesome look at May. National Community Action Month in May was created by the Community Action Partnership to reinforce Community Action agencies’ role in helping low-income families achieve economic stability.

During National Community Action Month, Community Action Agencies truly make the promise of Community Action—to help people and change lives—come alive by hosting events that help put a “face” on the families striving to achieve self-sufficiency. CKCAC will be hosting events throughout May with success stories being honored and personal achievements being recognized.

Community Action Agencies also use National Community Action Month to call attention to the positive programs that help thousands of families achieve self-sufficiency. As Central Kentucky Community Action Council continues to showcase our programs, we are also giving local residents -many of whom are unaware of the poverty in their communities -a first-hand look at the struggles low-income families face and how CKCAC programs help these families achieve financial security.

CKCAC will also be a part of the Senior Celebration on May 16 at the Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown as we celebrate Older Americans Month. This has been going on for over 50 years. Let’s keep it going and celebrate our seniors.

We don’t want to do this without you. I welcome you to be a part of it.

More to come….much more.
