The Promise of Community Action
Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope,
improves communities, and makes America a better place to live.
We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
We believe all people should be treated with dignity and respect and recognize that structural race, gender, and other inequities remain barriers that must be addressed.
As the Community Action Agency for low to moderate income residents throughout communities in our service area, O.C.E.A.N., Inc.’s mission is the delivery of quality, comprehensive services that improve the quality of life of individuals and families, and assist them in moving toward self-sufficiency.
We accomplish our mission by identifying community needs and advocating solutions,
utilizing available resources to promote the growth, development and personal independence of our customers and taking a leadership role in the strengthening and nurturing of partnerships in our community.
