May is Community Action Awareness Month
We connect Northern Kentucky – urban to rural, young to old, education to electricity. NKCAC empowers individuals and families who need immediate relief or long-term strategy to be successful. The nation’s Community Action network – including 1000 plus Community Action Agencies – are a robust, national, state, and local force, reaching children and families in 99% of America’s counties with life changing services that create pathways to opportunity and prosperity. The Community Action network: – Connects individuals and families to approaches that help them succeed – including high quality education programs for children, job retraining for adults, stable and affordable housing for families, utility assistance for seniors, and so much more. – Promotes community-wide solutions to seemingly stubborn challenges throughout our cities, suburbs, and in rural areas – whether it’s the lack of affordable housing or the need to promote economic growth that benefits all families. – Shares expertise with national, state, and local leaders looking for evidence on what works to promote greater economic opportunity for children and families. The Vision: America’s Community Action Agencies connect millions of children and families to greater opportunity, transforming their lives and making our communities and our nation stronger. Every year, these agencies help: – Tens of thousands of children and youth with before and after school programs. – More than 165,000 unemployed people get a job. – Almost 220,000 families find safe and affordable housing. – About 6.5 million people, including seniors, make their homes more energy efficient and lower their utility bills. We hope you will join us at one of our events taking place this month to celebrate the impact Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission has on the lives of families in Northern Kentucky.
