The goal of Community Action is to help low-income individuals and families escape poverty. The causes of poverty are oftentimes complex and always unique to the individual household. But, with a supportive policy and programmatic environment, and with the assistance of dedicated individuals in the community, it can be done.
WISCAP believes in personal and in community responsibility to ensure economic opportunity. Through efforts to create jobs that pay a living wage with benefits, that provide safe and affordable housing, that make health care both affordable and accessible and that expand education, we can — as communities in action — provide economic opportunity for all.
