Observing 50 Years Of Community Action Service To Cameron County

 

On August 20, 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Economic Opportunity Act which created a variety of programs, including Community Action Agencies, as part of his War on Poverty. He knew then as we know now, that the war against poverty must be won in the field, in every private home, in every public office, from the courthouse to the White House.

 

Northern Tier Community Action was established in 1966 to wage the war on poverty in Cameron , Elk, McKean and Potter Counties by promoting self-sufficiency for those of limited income, ensuring that all residents are able to live in dignity; by implementing innovative and cost-effective programs to improve the lives and living conditions of the impoverished; by providing support and instruction for everyone in need of assistance; and by being a major voice of reason in establishing welfare system reforms.

 

“Community Action Month is a wonderful time to honor and celebrate the impact Community Action has in the lives of families and communities across the country,” stated David Greene, Executive Director “Agencies are successful every day in helping families achieve economic security. Given that the needs of each family and community are unique, Community Action is able to use a range of resources and programs to meet local needs in creative and impactful ways.”

 

Northern Tier Community Action statistics underscores a positive impact on local neighborhoods. The agency helps countless individuals improve their lives each year by providing them essential services and life-changing opportunities through Weatherization, Head Start, Child Care, Food and Nutrition, Foreclosure Prevention, Homeless Prevention, Case Management and Veterans Assistance as well as making available affordable housing, economic development, energy assistance, and more.

 

Despite experiencing budget cuts, shrinking resources, and increased demands for services during these challenging economic times, Northern Tier Community Action has been remarkably successful assisting the low-income veterans, senior citizens, families, and children of Cameron, Elk, McKean and Potter Counties to achieve and maintain economic security. As David Greene attests: “Our staff is committed to their task of replacing disadvantages with opportunities because it is right, because it is wise, and because, in our hearts and minds we believe it is possible to conquer poverty in our lifetime.”
