To achieve economic stability, basic needs must be met first.
At Community Action, we recognize that basic needs, such as food and shelter, must be met before our case management can be effective in empowering people to achieve economic stability. Community Action helps to ensure basic needs are met through the provision of hot evening meals at our soup kitchen, The Gathering Place, and emergency rent and utility assistance for households facing or transitioning out of homelessness.
We also recognize the value of the numerous other organizations that provide for basic needs in our community. Our duty and responsibility is to ensure that people who come through our doors are aware of and make use of these resources.
