Community Action Commission of Erie, Huron & Richland Counties, Inc., in Sandusky, Ohio, believes that fighting poverty in America starts with implementing community service projects. For us, this is the true embodiment of a cooperative society at work. Lead by our CEO Janice W. Warner, CCAP, we formally welcome you to our website!
The Promise of Community Action
"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 Agencies began in 1964. Our nonprofit organization became a recognized entity after the enactment of the Economic Opportunity Act legislation, following President Lyndon B. Johnson's declaration of the "War on Poverty." We were established as Erie-Huron Counties Community Action Commission, Inc. We changed our name to Community Action Commission of Erie, Huron & Richland Counties, Inc. (CACEHR), on January 1, 2012, after the agency expanded into Richland counties.
To promote self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life of those in need.
CACEHR is a leading agency embracing a diverse community with outstanding arms uplifting individuals to their highest potential by empowering all to a more successful life in an ever changing world.
