Community Action 60 Years Strong

Community Action Network Recognizes 60 Years of Service

2024 marks the 60th year since the Community Action Network was established to help American families and communities overcome obstacles to poverty. Over 1,000 agencies across the country are working every day to create opportunities and transform the lives of their neighbors making communities stronger and helping families across the US thrive. This year, HAPCAP, a proud member of the Community Action Network, will also commemorate 59 years helping families throughout Hocking, Athens, and Perry Counties.

“Each May, during Community Action Month, we reflect on the impact HAPCAP and our network has had on families,” said Valerie Addis of HAPCAP. “Last year alone, the Community Action network served over 15 million across the country with immediately needed services such as shelter and food, and also long-term solutions like education and job placement.”

Community Action Agencies serve 99% of all American counties with life-changing services to help families achieve financial stability. All agencies are locally controlled and represented by the private, public, and low-income sectors of the community. “We are proud of our communities’ participation in the development and oversight of our programs,” said Addis. “Their engagement helps us to be more effective in our approach by determining what Hocking, Athens, and Perry counties need.”

To celebrate the continued success of Community Action and raise awareness, HAPCAP will be sharing our services, impact, and history all month long on social media.
