Executive Director's Message

WCAC Executive Director Marybeth Campbell

I am incredibly honored to have been named Worcester Community Action Council’s newest Executive Director.  I’ve had the privilege of serving as a WCAC board member since 2017 and now am excited to take the helm as its next leader.  What appealed most to me about the opportunity to lead WCAC is our role and history of impact as a responsive tool for the 45 communities and the thousands of people we serve annually.  Our programs have a wide reach from our Early Head Start and Head Start offerings in Webster and Southbridge that ready young children for transition into Kindergarten, our Jobs and Education Center that prepares Worcester youth and young adults for education and employment opportunities, our Healthy Families Initiative that works with first time parents for the first 1,000 days of their child’s life, and our Energy programs that help our disabled, veteran, senior and low-income neighbors stay warm with fuel and energy efficiency assistance.  Even more than any one single program is our ability to create greater access to economic and community resources across the varied needs of individuals and families.

We have an expert team and committed Board of Directors working to advance our mission, together, to help individuals and families move to economic self-sufficiency through programs, partnerships and advocacy.  We also have a deep network of partners across city, state, federal, nonprofit, consumer and business sectors to help us meet the needs of everyone we serve.

If you don’t know us yet, I encourage you to reach out and engage with us to learn more.  I look forward to working with staff, our board, and our many partners and funders as I embark on my tenure here. – Marybeth Campbell, Executive Director


WCAC remains committed to excellence, best practices and accountability for all of our staff, programs, policies and procedures to ensure those in need receive valuable services that help them move to economic self-sufficiency. Review our Strategic Plan below.
