An Open House event helped mark a milestone at the Cincinnati Hamilton County Community Action Agency. The event, held at CAA in Bond Hill on Monday, May 12th was the first of its kind at the agency. President and CEO Gwen Robinson and Board Chair, Mark Lawson welcomed guests who were invited to tour the building and learn more about the agency’s programs and services.
The evening featured a 50th Anniversary milestone ribbon cutting thanks to the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce. In addition, a special ice sculpture, crafted especially for the event was showcased as well as students from the Walnut Hills High School Jazz Lab. The band performed classic jazz selections throughout the two-hour event.
CAA program directors were part of the interactive tour, providing a rare inside look into the services offered by the agency. Restaurant owners from Mazunte in Madisonville, and Red Rose Jems in North College Hill were on hand with food samples. Both restaurants are in business, thanks in part to the Greater Cincinnati Microenterprise Initiative (GCMI) located within the Community Action Agency. In addition, students from CAA’s Youth Development showcased their work by demonstrating their construction skills on a model home.
Whether it is help with paying electric bills (HEAP), affordable preschool (Head Start) the Community Action Agency has been helping people, changing lives for five decades strong.
The Open House was a wonderful way to mark an extraordinary milestone for an agency that is always there for the community.

On Wednesday, April 9 the Community Action Agency's Head Start Parent Policy Council joined national and statewide initiatives to prevent child abuse. The problem in Hamilton County is significant: 5,902 reports of child abuse and neglect in 2013.
Head Start parents, staff and students are taking part in 'Pinwheels for Prevention' and 'Wear Blue' Day. Each of the 300 pinwheels planted on the lawn of CAA represents approximately 20 children who were reported as abused or neglected in Hamilton County last year. Head Start's participation serves as an investment in the healthy development of our children.
In addition, Community Action Agency staff, including Head Start and many students are wearing blue in solidarity with statewide efforts to prevent child abuse. At CAA we know that investing in child development is an investment in community and economic development. Effective strategies can save taxpayers as much as $80 billion per year. The cost of not doing this is measured in increased foster care, special education, health problems and the justice system.
