About Us: Community Action has been offering hope, help and change for families in transition. Community Action programs promote the birth of health babies, reduce the potential for child abuse and neglect, increase children's changes for success in school, and improve the quality and accessibility of child care. We also offer energy assistance and help to prevent homelessness. Community Action also works with employers, providing information about programs that can assist low-wage workers. We promote the vision that Washington County residents are strong, resilient and involved in the community, living with dignity and security. Please join us as we keep working to make our communities more secure. We urge you to participate, educate, advocate, and donate to organizations working to make a difference. Community Action's leadership is essential to community service agencies, churches, businesses, civic groups and local governments in Washington County. We are one of 18 Community Action agencies in Oregon (1,000 nation-wide) started after passage of the U.S. Economic Opportunity Act of 1964.
