Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission lifts up families and children in ways that no other organization can. For more than 40 years, we have worked hard to develop a strong reputation for providing quality, essential services and for providing a voice for the low income families we serve.


We help low income individuals and families develop the knowledge, opportunities, and resources they need to achieve self reliance.

NKCAC takes a whole person - whole family - whole community approach, with two primary focus areas:

Developmental - helping families gain the skills, abilities, and motivations to become economically independent; and

Supportive - providing basic, temporary assistance to give families greater comfort, safety, dignity and security as they transition out of poverty.

Our impressive and diverse range of services help low income families eliminate the barriers and circumstances which tend to prevent self-sufficiency, while proving that safety net to help families improve comfort and functioning while on the journey toward economic independence.
