Community Action, Inc. (CAI) was 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.
