Welcome to Worcester Community Action Council

Worcester Community Action Council's (WCAC) mission is helping people move to economic self-sufficiency through programs, partnerships, and advocacy. WCAC was started in 1965 under President Lyndon B. Johnson's "War on Poverty." It is the federally designated "community action agency" for Central MA. Today, the agency serves the City of Worcester and 43 surrounding towns through 18 emergency and social service programs.
