Agency recognizes National Community Action Month


The Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc., a local nonprofit corporation, will celebrate May as national Community Action Month.

“Our goal this month is to highlight the real problems low-income people in Delaware County are facing, especially during these challenging economic times,” said Edward Coleman, chief executive officer of Community Action Agency of Delaware County, in a prepared statement.

“People come to (our agency) desperate for help because they have experienced so many hardships and have no place else to turn. We show them that they can change their lives and we have a proven track record helping the most vulnerable people achieve economic security.”

In addition, county council adopted a resolution recognizing the week of May 13-19 as national Nursing Home Week.
