 About Us

Community Action, Inc. (CAI) is a not-for-profit organization offering
programs to fight poverty in Rock and Walworth Counties.

Founded in 1965 as part of Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty initiatives. Its focus then, as well as now, is to prevent and reduce poverty in its local communities. To this end, the agency invests more resources to fight poverty in Rock and Walworth counties than any other not-for-profit organization. 

Community Action Agencies (CAA) currently serve 96% of the counties across the United States. Each CAA is a locally controlled organization designed to respond to the specific human service needs of that community. As a result, every Community Action boasts different programs based on identified local needs.
 
CAI develops and implements a broad range of services across our two-county area including: child care, pre-school and school age programs, affordable housing and housing counseling services, at-risk youth programs, weatherization, community organizing and development, a homeless shelter, health care, and the Temporary Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).  
 
In addition, Community Action invests in the cultivation of partnerships with other local agencies. As an established community agency we are regularly trusted to take the lead in collaborative grants and develop sub-contracts with local service providers, including faith-based organizations.
