Welcome to YOUR Community Action Agency

In 1964 President Johnson declared a War on Poverty; and signed the Economic Opportunity Act. This act declared it was the policy of the United States to "eliminate the paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty." As a result Community Actions were established to remove the obstacles and barriers so individuals and families could regain self-sufficiency.

In 1967, YOUR Community Action Agency opened.

Community Action works primarily in Marion and Polk Counties with partner agencies, local leaders, government officials, and other organizations to identify community needs, gather resources, and direct those resources where they will have the greatest impact.
