This year marks the 59th year since the Community Action Network was established to help American families and communities overcome obstacles to poverty.
Over 1,000 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, according to the organization in a prepared statement this week. This year, Community Council of South Central Texas, a member of the Community Action Network, will also commemorate 58 years of helping families throughout its 31-county service area.
“Each May, during Community Action Month, we reflect on the impact CCSCT and our network has had on families,” CCSCT Executive Director Bobby Deike said. “Last year alone, we helped to transition 55 people out of poverty, assisted with the payment of 20,545 utility bills, weatherized 102 homes, provided 51 households with rental assistance, rendered 28,889 WIC services, guided 195 people to obtain stable housing, had 184 Head Start/Early Head Start enrollments, and graciously served 195 veterans.”
Community Action Agencies serve 99 percent 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,” Deike said. “Their engagement helps us to be more effective in our approach by determining what our clients need.”
Community Council of South Central Texas is a member of the National Community Action Partnership and the Community Action Network, which was born out of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. CCSCT is a non-profit community action agency that empowers vulnerable families and individuals in the greater South Central Texas area to achieve self-sufficiency by eliminating barriers through innovative programs and strong community partnerships.
