Find Housing

Are you experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless?  Your Community Action Agency can help you navigate the services and resources in your area.  Some programs specifically serve veterans, others serve seniors or families with children.

 

Contact your local agency to learn more about all the ways we can help you get back on the path to stable housing.

 

Reduce Your Energy Bills

Community Action may be able to help you lower your energy bills, even if you do not own your home. Energy Conservation provides no-cost weatherization assistance to income-qualified residents. 

If you qualify, you will receive a comprehensive energy audit. During this visit, diagnostic tests are performed by an Energy Auditor to determine potential cost-effective improvements. Once improvements are selected, licensed contractors perform the installations.  You save money every month through lower energy bills.

Help Educate Your Pre-Schooler

Help your child prepare for school, and life, by giving them the best possible head start.  The experiences children have in their early years - from birth to age 5 - have a tremendous impact on their chances for success in education and life.

 

Our Head Start programs ensure that children have safe, stable, and nurturing environments that foster their healthy development.
