MAKING A DIFFERENCE: #CommunityActionResponds
Community Action Agencies are constantly thinking about what is most needed in the communities they serve and responding. Sometimes there are quick ways to respond, and sometimes there is a need for long-term project plans. Check out these exciting projects:
In Lawrence: Greater Lawrence Community Action Council (GLCAC) broke ground on a 39-unit, five-story complex of apartments and commercial space at the corner of Essex and Amesbury streets. The project will provide much needed affordable housing to low-income residents as well as transform the street. It is only a few blocks from GLCAC main offices providing easy access to so many services. Learn more.
In Wareham and Bourne: South Shore Community Action Council (SSCAC) is pleased to announce it has been awarded a $1.18 million grant from the federal Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Office of Head Start. The grant will fund start-up costs and enable SSCAC to expand its award-winning Head Start and Early Head Start program to provide free early education and care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers from Wareham and Bourne.
