A hand up in 2014

As we celebrate the holiday season and turn the page on another year I would like to personally thank all of those who worked to help Community Action extend a hand up in 2014.  The investments we received of time, talent and dollars helped so many, in so many ways.


Because of your generosity, Community Action provided shelter to the homeless, homes to new home-buyers, early learning and care to young children, high school and occupational training  for at-risk young people, family skill building and employment for struggling fathers, skill training for low-wage workers and car loans to working poor families.  This is only part of the list and a list like this never captures the heart of the work. 


Because of your investments, an unemployed father is both engaged with his children and working in a manufacturing job, building his family, his skills and his future.  Because of you, children who were homeless had a place to lay their head at night and a warm meal to start and end their day.  Because of you a young adult aging out of foster care had help finding a place to live and a place to work.  Because of you a young child started kindergarten with the tools and skills they needed to launch their learning career.  Because of you, there was a path out of poverty and people to help along the way.  Lives were changed - because of you.


As we stop to count our blessings, the compassion and investment of our community tops the list.  Please accept our heartfelt thanks and appreciation  for your strong and vital support.


Wishing you happy holidays and the very best in the new year.
