Last year, Lifeline we provided services to more than 2,598 unduplicated households in our communities.
Community Action creates opportunities for success. From assistance with home heating to access to health care, food, housing, transportation, job training, and so much more, Lifeline is an outreach to the community to help lift people out of poverty. We offer the critical next steps in establishing and maintaining long-term economic stability.
The people we help are remarkable people. They take responsibility for making lasting changes in their lives, and their success stories are our success stories.
