“One of the greatest things you can do to help others is not just to share and give what you have, but to help them discover what they have within themselves to help themselves.” – Rita Zahara
The Worcester Community Action Council strives to do just that, with self-sufficiency at the heart of all of the agency’s programs and services. Whether it be helping first time parents navigate the challenges of raising a newborn; helping young children gain early literacy and development skills as a foundation for life-long learning and success; providing at-risk teens and young adults with educational and employment training, certificate options and real world work experience; providing quality childcare to allow parents to find secure employment; or helping the disabled, seniors, veterans and others with limited income remain warm in their homes – WCAC works to meet the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors by providing the tools and supports they require.
We, along with our dynamic Board of Directors, remain dedicated to helping individuals and families move to economic self-sufficiency through programs, partnerships and advocacy.
While challenges related to poverty, income equality and economic opportunity continue, WCAC stands strong, experienced and prepared to continue this important work – opening paths to self-sufficiency for all those who walk through our doors. Thank you for your continued support of WCAC!
