Little Dixie Community Action Agency celebrated Community Action Month during May 2018. Every year during the month of May, Community Action Agencies are dedicated to recognizing the success of the Community Action Network. America’s Community Action Agencies connect millions of children and families to greater opportunity, transform lives and make communities stronger. LDCAA took the time to engage in programs and events that showcase the innovative work in Choctaw, McCurtain and Pushmataha counties.
“Community Action Month is a wonderful time to honor and celebrate the impact Community Action has in the lives of families and communities across the country,” stated Rebecca Reynolds – LDCAA Executive Director. “The Community Action Partnership Network offers insight to leaders looking to understand what is working on the ground to help families thrive – creating smarter solutions that can be put to work within communities across the country.”
Reynolds continued, “This past year, our agency has served 2,072 families and empowered them to attain self-sufficiency. 503 children were served through Head Start; the Transit Program provided 15,330 passenger trips; 387 individuals obtained housing and financial skills and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program donated 70,805 hours of community service. Our work changes lives and strengthens our entire community.”
