"Community Action Council's philosophy and approach to poverty in its communities are described in its Vision Statement:
As advocates, we listen, understand, and take our lead from the low income population; we assist the low income population in advocating for themselves; and we advocate for the low income population at all levels of public policy including economic, legislative, government and business.
As a community action agency, we provide community and neighborhood-based services that are integrated, comprehensive, developmental, and, empowering for individuals, families and communities. We utilize technology to enhance the quality and efficiency of our services and service delivery, holding ourselves accountable for measurable results.
As an organization that believes the low-income population must be active participants in the ultimate solutions to poverty, Community Action Council will develop civic capital and promote community involvement within the low income community by identifying and capitalizing on the assets, leadership and talents present within the community.
