Description

MISSION --------------------------------------------------
The mission of Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency is to empower low-income people and strengthen communities through diverse services, leadership and collaboration.

OUR PURPOSE --------------------------------------------------
Wayne Metro Community Action Agency is a non-profit agency with 501(c)(3) status. As the Community Action Agency for the forty-two communities in Out-Wayne County, Wayne Metro offers an extensive series of support programs and services to income-eligible community residents. Our programs and services encompass four focus areas: Community Support Services, Homeless Programs, Youth and Family Services and Community Development.

Wayne Metro is advised by five Regional Advisory Councils which assist the agency in identifying and assessing the current and future needs of the communities we serve. Each council elects one of its members to serve as a voting member of the agency's Board of Directors.

The agency operates under a tripartite Board of Directors that is equally represented by the private, public, and consumer sectors.

OUR HISTORY --------------------------------------------------
Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are non-profit, private and public organizations established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War of Poverty. Community Action Agencies help people to help themselves in achieving self-sufficiency. Today there are approximately 1,000 Community Action Agencies in the United States.
