Community Action Commission of Erie, Huron & Richland Counties, Inc., in Sandusky, Ohio, believes that fighting poverty in America starts by 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.
Committed to Serve
As a certified member of the Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies™, we are committed to eliminating poverty and promoting self-sufficiency. We offer a head-start today by implementing various programs for individuals and families in Erie, Huron, and Richland counties. We are governed by an 18 member Board of Directors that equally represents public, private, and clientele sectors of all three counties.
Celebrated 51 Years
In 2016, we celebrated 51 glorious years in the industry. To commemorate this milestone, we will be held a luncheon on October 28th, 2016. The celebratory luncheon ran from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Collonade Banquet Facility™ in Milan, Ohio. We had a special guest speaker, Mr. Ray Miller of Columbus, Ohio.
