Transit Notice to Public:
Due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) concerns, transportation services will remain open with a three-foot social distancing rule between passengers. No more than three passengers per bus and no passengers allowed in the front seat.
Also, due to reduced staff we must assign trips with priority to medical trips first and all others based on driver availability. These actions are being taken for the well-being and safety of passengers as well as our drivers. We thank the public for their understanding of these unfortunate but necessary changes in order for Little Dixie to continue providing essential transit services as safely as possible during these challenging times.
Hi everyone, I wanted to notify the public of our adjustments to services. At this time, Little Dixie’s offices will remain open. However, in keeping the safety of our clients and staff in mind we are encouraging all customers to conduct services via telephone or email. For essential emergency services, you may visit our locations by appointment. Services such as HS/EHS will follow the public-school systems guidance for opening and closing centers. Transportation services will remain open with a three-foot rule between passengers. No more than three passengers per bus and no passengers allowed in the front seat. Our VITA Income Tax Preparation services will be rescheduled for a later date. Please visit our Facebook page and website for contact information for each location and their services. Little Dixie is working diligently to continue its services. If you are in need of emergency services, please contact one of our Homeownership Centers or Family Service Centers in our tri-county area.

Little Dixie Community Action
Helping People Changing Lives
Little Dixie Community Action Agency, Inc., founded in 1968, is the primary provider of social services in Choctaw, McCurtain and Pushmataha counties of rural Southeast Oklahoma. Agency programs range from education to transportation, tourism, economic development and more. Services are designed to positively impact the lives of those we touch. Although most programs exist to serve at-risk low-income families, our reach extends far beyond improving the quality of life for the entire community.
Who We Are
Little Dixie has been assisting low income people since 1968. Anti-poverty programs implemented by Little Dixie have substantially decreased poverty in the southeast Oklahoma area.
What We Do
Little Dixie carries out many different types of services. Our focus includes community services, early childhood, transportation, low income housing programs, tourism and economic development.
How Can We Help
From youth mentoring programs, job training programs, housing assistance programs, daycare and senior care food programs, head start programs and much more, we are here to help!
How Can You Help
Without the generosity of those in our community who volunteer and donate to our cause, we wouldn’t exist. Every little bit means a lot. Little Dixie is changing lives one person at a time. Come join us in the cause!

“Little Dixie’s Weatherization program did so much to make my home feel like new. I’m so thankful. The house was built in the 40’s. My dad was raised there and I have lived 21 years there. It was so cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The difference ya’ll have made is amazing. I can’t thank you enough.”
Angel Hillis, a participant in Missouri, said, “It’s more than I ever thought I would have. This time last year we were living with my mom. Building our home and moving in is a dream come true. It was exciting. I can’t explain it, I lay in bed for two hours thinking ‘I am in my own home.'”
Brian Huddleston of Arkansas said of the program, “If it wasn’t for this program, we probably would never be able to afford a house.”
“They learn so much while still being creative, active, singing, and teaching good manners. I would never be able to say enough about how wonderful the Little Dixie Head Start program truly is. Parent involvement makes it work smoother.”
