A National Network

Helping People. Changing Lives.

The nation’s 1,000-plus Community Action Agencies are a robust, state and local force – reaching children and families in 99% of America’s counties with life-changing services that create pathways to prosperity.

Community Action Agencies are locally run but receive a range of public and private resources for their work. This includes funding from the federal Community Services Block Grant – America’s commitment to putting tax dollars back into communities to strengthen the economic security of families. Community Action Agencies have the expertise and dedication it takes to serve families and communities best.

Our Service Area

Providing Services in 28 Counties Throughout Alabama

The Partnership provides human and social services in almost one-half of Alabama’s 67 counties. 
Our Core County Service Area includes those counties funded by the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG).  Our Expanded County Service Area provides services other than those funded by CSBG dollars.  Our Extended County Service Area primarily provides opportunities for affordable housing as well as Homeownership Services.
