Missouri Association for Community Action
Get Involved! Missouri CAN Fight Poverty
Commit to Our Vision – Currently, the Missouri Association for Community Action and the Community Action Network are working to engage 2,000 community members in advocating for our vision:
United in purpose, the Missouri Community Action Network will inspire and engage people to ensure that all families and communities thrive.
Together we are working to develop a statewide plan to end poverty and we need your help. We need you to commit to this vision and take action to educate yourself and others about the causes and impact of poverty on our communities. In addition, we hope that you will work with us to encourage positive changes in policies and programs that will help alleviate the effects of and eliminate the causes of poverty.
