How has community action helped you?

Each year community action agencies throughout the country provide help to over 15 million  low-income people and families by providing education and training, emergency services, and other assistance programs, such as weatherization and home energy assistance. But each year our funding is threatened by budget restraints and administrative changes. In order to keep community action viable in your neighborhood, we need to share the good works that community action programs throughout Ohio have done with the public. Please share your success stories by completing the questionnaire below. This information will be used by the Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies or your local community action agency in one or all of the following ways: newsletter article, web posting or blog posting, a press release or media/government information packet.


If you have been helped by your local community action agency, please share your success story so that we can keep community action viable in Ohio.


Please let us know if you wish to remain anonymous.
