Advocacy and self-sufficiency may be currently the vogue, however, Community Action Programs have had the legal mission to advocate for the poor and help them reach self-sufficiency for more than 40 years. Today, there are approximately 1,000 Community Action Agencies in the United States, serving every community. Community Action Agencies are the pre-eminent community building, human service delivery, and low-income advocacy network in America. In Rhode Island, eight CAP agencies provide social services to almost 182,000 state residents. Every year Providence Community Action assists one third, or 33% of the states total.
Providence Community Action is a private, non profit organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life for low income Providence residents. Their services include heating and weatherization assistance, consumer credit and debt counseling, clinical services (counseling), case management, an affordable housing program, Interim Middle School for youth excluded from regular public school and much more.
