From the CEO...

January 1, 2015 - Welcome to a new year and to a new era as this Community Action Agency moves beyond the marker of a half century. Our agency has already come a long way on its mission to attend to those among us who are living in poverty in the midst of plenty, but as the news headlines and viral videos confirm, our journey may yet be very long.

There is an African Proverb that says: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”   Each one of us at CAA is committed to putting value on the work we do and to being of one accord in order for team CAA to go far!

We are not a team simply because we work together in the same building, we are a team when we respect, trust and care for each other.  If you, like me continue to be inspired and motivated by the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, then I leave you with one more simple but powerful proverb - teamwork makes the dream work!
