Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As a community action agency our goal is to changes people’s lives for the better by addressing their needs and impediments, providing support and care, improving communities. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

We address food, homelessness, childhood education and care, home weatherization, senior and low income housing. We work in Inyo, Mono and Alpine counties.

We are the Continuum of Care, Food Bank, State Preschool and Community Child Care organization for our service area. We have a small but mighty staff with the assistance of many caring volunteers from our community. We have a great working relationship with our cities and counties and we work together to provide the services and support needed by our clients.

We have a good record of moving families from homeless to permanent housing, and from food insecure to food secure and with enrolling the children in our preschool. In our area most of the land is owned by some government entity. This has lead to a dire shortfall of available housing, especially for low to moderate income people. We are working with the local, county and state governments in our service area to try to address this need.
