Community Action Partnership
Community Action Partnership of Sonoma County is a dynamic multi-program human services organization dedicated to partnering with low-income populations to improve lives through both innovative direct service, and advocacy. Incorporated in 1967, this 501(c)(3) agency has become one of the largest service organizations in northern California. Community Action partnership was described by the Press Democrat columnist and noted historian, Gaye Le Baron as "arguably the most productive human services agency on the North Coast."
There are over 1,100 Community Action Agencies that make up a nation-wide network of anti-poverty agencies. Community Action as a movement maintains a promise to each of the communities in which they operate, which is; Community Action changes people's lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other. Community Action Partnership of Sonoma County was designated by the county Board of Supervisors as the official anti-poverty agency for the county of Sonoma.
Our goal in Sonoma County is to stand up for those struggling in the grips of poverty, provide much-needed intervention services, as well as being a voice those whose needs go unheard. We accomplish this through the implementation of culturally relevant and other best practices in programming and through community collaboration and partnerships.
One great example of a community partnership is the one with Speedway Children's Charities. SCC commitment to helping care for children so they can lead productive lives has been exemplified through the grants for youth development programming and outrageously generous support of our Children Health Center. SCC - Sonoma Chapter has truly made a difference in the lives of the children in our county!
