We are teachers and advocates who first
help people through an emergency or crisis.
Then, step-by-step, we guide them toward
action steps to independence and freedom
Community Action is a result of the 1964 Office of Economic Opportunity Act signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson, known as the WAR ON POVERTY. Under the early leadership of Robert Sargent Shriver and a host of community leaders, the movement continues 50 years later. Community Action, in over 1100 communities nationwide, is individually designed, agency by agency,for each community. CACHE is honored to serve the County of Sullivan in this war on poverty that unfortunately remains all too necessary. With the input and support of ALL, we can and will reduce poverty and it's ugly effects on society.
