To help individuals and families break the cycle of poverty and achieve their greatest potential.

Area Committee To Improve Opportunities Now (ACTION), Inc. is a Community Action Partnership Agency which has roots dating back to the 1960's. Envisioned by President John F. Kennedy and furthered by President Lyndon B. Johnson, the mission to end poverty began through the development of the Community Services Block Grant. Poverty continued to grow despite many human services development programs over the decades.

ACTION, Inc. has a dedicated focus to attack poverty by offering a hands-up approach and by partnering with individuals, both for the short term and the long term, to strategically identify ways in which they can achieve their fullest potential in order to support themselves and their families.
