In the last ten years, the population of the city of Lincoln alone has grown by more than 50 thousand people. In that same amount of time, the number of people living in poverty has grown by 45%. Poverty diminishes human potential. It takes away opportunities. And it prevents people from living their best lives.
At Community Action, we fight the causes and conditions of poverty to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Our 18 programs provide distinct services in four impact areas: Early Childhood Education, Homelessness Prevention, Financial and Family Well-Being, and Hunger Relief and Healthy Food Access. Our strengths-based approach to case management, which utilizes Motivational Interviewing™, guides our work to empower people living in poverty to reach economic stability.
