Founded in 1983, Community Action Partnership works with low and moderate-income families in Madison County to provide education, guidance, and accessibility to resources for families and children striving for economic self sufficiency and building resilience. We are the only not for profit, non-governmental agency in Madison County with a mission to serve families in need. Historically, we have served one out of every 16 Madison County residents.
Our Mission is to build resilience, well-being and safety at the individual, family and community level by meeting the basic needs of today and (identifying) the opportunities of tomorrow.
