Donate Now to Our Wish List

Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission (NKCAC) is very proud to offer an extensive list of services to individuals and families in our communities to develop the knowledge, opportunities and resources they need to achieve self-reliance.  Each year we are thankful for those who volunteer their time with us, and those who choose NKCAC as their charity of choice, but each year our Wish List grows with important needs for each program.
