About Community Action Partnership
Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area was established as a nonprofit corporation in December 1964, with the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act. This act called for “the elimination of the paradox of poverty in the land of plenty.” It mandated Community Action Agencies to focus all available local, state, private and federal resources on empowering low-income individuals and families to attain the skills, knowledge and opportunities required to become self-sufficient.
Since 1964, we have provided opportunities for low-income individuals and families to lead more productive lives through advocacy efforts, education, job training, employment and the provision of safe and affordable housing. For more information, please visit www.cap-dayton.org.
