You belong here.
This incredible community is composed of generous, passionate, and determined people—like you. They’re community changers and history makers. And you’re going to fit right in.
Here’s what you can expect as a Community Promise Team member…
A place in history
There are only a few times in each of our lives that we get to witness a truly historic accomplishment: Ending smallpox, tearing down the Berlin Wall, the establishment of Community Action! In 1965 President Lydon B. Johnson envisioned The Great Society, a plan to improve the lives of all Americans, regardless of their circumstances. In August of that same year, the Economic Opportunity Act was signed into law by President Johnson creating the nationwide Community Action Network.
At CMCA we live the Promise of Community Action and believe that lifting people out of poverty in mid-Missouri communities – one individual – one family – at a time is possible. Our goal is to move families living in poverty into financial stability and self-sufficiency. When we achieve this goal, you will celebrate with us as a member of our Community Promise team!
A more vibrant community
The world we live in right now can be hard. And scary. And overwhelming. Despite homelessness, unemployment, hunger, and other inequities there is something we can do. Our contribution to supporting individuals and families with low income to move them toward financial stability and self-sustainability is vital to ensuring a healthy, vibrant community. Joining the Community Promise Team means you’re making an investment in our community and in the future. Joining the team means that we can make the changes we want to see – POSSIBLE!
