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.

 


About Community Action

Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are nonprofits originally established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Today, North Dakota has seven CAAs on the front-lines of the battle. These seven agencies provide essential services to every region and all 53 counties of the state.

CAAs enable low-income people of all ages to secure the opportunities they need to obtain and maintain economic security.

Mentoring a child helps them to see unlimited possibilities for the future, learn something new and most importantly, realize that somebody cares about them.

While it might seem simple to say talents can help others, actually identifying your talents and putting them to good use can be a little bit more difficult.

If you strive to live an altruistic lifestyle, there are plenty of gifts you can give your loved one on Mother’s Day that also give back to others in the community.

Teenagers are our future; by building them up and encouraging them—even if they’re not our own children—we can create a better future for generations to come.
