Community action agencies
in Iowa have been successfully assisting families living in poverty
to become self-sufficient for more than forty years. Iowans can
be proud of the innovative and effective efforts of these locally
governed, community-driven organizations that are confronting the
issues of poverty head on, one community, and one family at a time.
Iowa Division of Community
Action Agencies serves to strengthen and support the work of Iowa's
eighteen local community action agencies. Together, this network
served over 320,000 Iowans in FY 2005 in such areas as health, education,
employment, family development, child care, energy efficiency, nutrition,
housing, and emergency services.
