Impact Community Action
Impact Community Action is a community based organization that provides support services to marginalized people in the community. Their mission is to fight poverty by providing hope-inspiring help and real opportunities for self-sufficiency. Services include housing stability and crisis assistance, job training, financial wellness, youth services and other support services. Impact Community Action also supports youth involved in the justice system and facing other issues such as runaways, homelessness, pregnancy, foster care, and others. The CCMEP Achieve More & Prosper (A.M.P.) Program for In-School Youth (ISY) or Out-of School Youth (OSY) is a new initiative designed for young adults ages 16-24. They provide program participants with paid work experiences, career-specific certifications, work readiness training, computer literacy, financial literacy, life skills, educational support, access to post-secondary education opportunities, and employability coaching. The HEAP program helps low income families by providing housing during winter. In addition, they offer rental and mortgage assistance to those in danger of homelessness or establishing permanent housing.
