Community Action Opportunities is a catalyst for individual, family and community change. We help hundreds of people each year to transform their lives. As a Community Action Agency, founded in 1964 by the Economic Opportunity Act, we work with citizens who live on limited incomes, elected public officials and private sector representatives to confront and solve the problems that cause poverty.
