|Open Letter from Terry Newhard, Executive Director NORWESCAP
In an effort to heighten the awareness of poverty and highlight the role of Community Action Agencies May is designated by the Community Action Partnership as National Community Action Month. What does this mean? NORWESCAP was established as a Community Action Agency and has been providing over forty years of innovative collaborative programs to strengthen our communities.
Having a National Community Action Month allows NORWESCAP to share the success of the network of Community Action Agencies (CAA). Across the United States the Community Action Partnership reports that over 20 million people in rural, suburban and urban communities move out of poverty and begin achieving economic security. The Promise of Community Action-which is to help people and change lives-is a passion which motivates the 300 employees of NORWESCAP day in and day out as we provide targeted programs to people in poverty.
