  • CAAP is pleased to announce that we have created three new videos. The goal of these video projects is to share Community Action’s mission and impact with as many people as possible. In a time when not one poverty-related question was asked during the presidential or Democratic primary debates, we feel that now more than ever is the time to share our clients’ realities and challenges with as many people as possible.

    The third and final video, titled "Why We Do This", touches on the heart of the issues. This video tries to capture the spirit and motivation for our work. Of the many wonderful comments, Dan Jurman's summary at the end really brings it home. Dan says, "I wasn’t less of a person when I was living in poverty than I am now that I have a great job … and it would be my dream that everyone realizes that, because that’s the beginning of healing."

    Feel free to use these videos in whatever way you wish, such as trainings, meetings, presentations, social media, and more.

    We hope you enjoy, but more importantly – we hope you share.

    The second video, titled "What We Do", details how Community Action uses a holistic community-centric approach to move low-income individuals and families to self-sufficiency. One of the video's many wonderful comments comes from Megan Shreve of South Central Community Action Programs. Megan notes, “We run lots of programs, but we try and think how to broker those programs towards an end goal, and that’s helping a family to empower them to reach self-sufficiency or collaborating with the community to create a path out of poverty". There's also Sue Auman from Union-Snyder Community Action Agency's concise comment, "We are the catalyst for social change."

    We will release the last video later on this week. Feel free to use these videos in whatever way you wish, such as trainings, meetings, presentations, social media, and more.

    We hope you enjoy, but more importantly – we hope you share.

    In the first video, titled "Who We Are", our interviewees provide an overview of Community Action’s overarching mission of moving low-income people to self-sufficiency. Of the many wonderful comments, Alan Jennings from the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley quips, “I like to say that as an organization we don't do anything for anyone ... give them a fish they eat for a day, if you teach them to fish they eat for a lifetime, but with attitude added to it.”

LIHEAP is a grant that offers assistance in the form of a cash grant, sent directly to the utility company, or a crisis grant for households in immediate danger of being without heat.

  • Through a partnership with the PA Department of Banking and Securities, CAAP is presenting a free one-hour educational webinar on consumer protections rights. The Department helped consumers with obtaining refunds from their banks, avoiding losing their homes to foreclosure, getting out of the endless payday loan traps, avoiding vehicle repossessions, and countless other things that can be financially devastating.
