CEOC Community Action Month

May is National Community Action Month, and we’re reflecting on all we’ve accomplished together in our fight against the causes and impacts of poverty throughout Cambridge, and how much further we still have to go.

Did you know that CEOC is part of a nationwide network of Community Action Agencies? Born out of the War on Poverty in the 1960s, Community Action Agencies are nonprofit organizations committed to fighting poverty on a local level. CEOC has been Cambridge’s only nonprofit Community Action Agency since our founding in 1965.

Every May, we celebrate Community Action Month as an affirmation of the power of our network—a time for us to come together and elevate our voices in support of the people and neighborhoods we serve. It’s also a time to bolster the programs and services that help families succeed.

We hope you will join us in honoring National Community Action Month with a donation in support of CEOC’s food, housing, health, and financial services for your neighbors in need.
