From the CEO

I recently had the opportunity to conduct a full day ROMA training, along with a terrific co-trainer, Demetra Alberti from Delaware Opportunities.  We had an active group of 15 people from four Community Action Agencies.  While conducting a full day ROMA training is a challenging endeavor, doing so reminds me how fortunate we are in Community Action to have this ROMA framework for our work and to have had visionary leaders develop the ROMA training and, more importantly, help us in Community Action to demonstrate the powerful impact we have on the communities we serve.  Our ability to answer the critical “so what difference do we make” question about our work puts us in a strong position to sustain the broad base of support that has enabled us to survive during the many challenging times we have faced in our 50+ year history...
