Tri-County Action Program, Inc. (Tri-CAP) is the local Community Action Agency for the counties of Benton, Sherburne, and Stearns. As we celebrate National Community Action Month, we invite you to get to know Community Action, by learning who we are and what we do.
Community Action has been putting a human face on poverty for more than 50 years while advocating for those who don’t have a voice, helping to replace despair with opportunity. Community Action serves 99% of America’s counties in rural, suburban, and urban communities providing much needed services and opportunities to millions of people. Community Action helps to improve lives and communities by providing financial education, pre-employment training, housing assistance, energy assistance, asset development, tax assistance, transportation, home ownership, weatherization and much more.
Community Action Agencies strike poverty at its source by implementing innovative programs created to meet local needs. We assists veterans, senior citizens, families, children, students, and everyone in between and because of this there are people who have not only risen out of poverty, but have been able to purchase homes, get college degrees, and start their own businesses. Lives touched by Community Action go on to contribute to and create new possibilities for those around them.
Community Action past, present, and future is an essential aspect of promoting economic security which in turn enhances stronger communities throughout America. Whether you are interested as a client, employee, or stakeholder, we invite you to learn more about Tri-CAP and join us in celebrating National Community Action Month.
