COMMUNITY ACTION DULUTH EMPOWERS FAMILIES TO PERMANENTLY LIFT THEMSELVES OUT OF POVERTY.
WE'RE A NON-PROFIT ON A MISSION TO END POVERTY AND WE'RE INVITING YOU TO BE A PART OF IT.
HERE'S HOW WE DO IT.
We equip the people we serve with the durable financial and employment skills to permanently raise themselves out of poverty;
We empower the people we serve to advocate for public policies that support the achievement of economic self-sufficiency; and
We engage community volunteers as close allies in the long journey from poverty to prosperity.
AND HERE'S WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT.
Rather than distributing temporary aid, we provide training that supports our participants' journeys out of poverty;
Rather than treating people experiencing poverty as passive recipients of services, we engage them to chart their own destiny; and
Rather than ignoring systemic barriers to prosperity, we engage the entire community to remove those barriers.
The resources it will take to maintain the integrity and effectiveness of our services in 2014 is $100,000. This is the gap between what it takes to meet the demand of our families facing barriers and what our current funding provides.
BE A PART OF IT. GIVE TODAY.
