Pace reaches social media milestone, encourages other CAAs to support one another online

At the end of 2019, Pace Community Action Agency reached a Facebook milestone: 3,000 likes!  “We have found that this is an effective and inexpensive way to reach clients, potential staff and potential donors,” says Pace’s associate director,” Tai Blythe.  “We use it to keep our board engaged and community aware of who we are and what we do.”

Tai encourages CAA staff to follow each other’s Facebook pages — not only to help boost likes, but also to get ideas and learn more about other CAAs in the state.  To make that easier, we have compiled a list of all CAAs on Facebook, so that you can quickly click on each link and then like each page – see newsletter for listing.
