NETWORK CAPACITY – Helping you help others

Upcoming Training: United in Purpose
The United in Purpose training is designed to introduce new employees to the history, vision, and values of Community Action.  On December 9, your staff has an opportunity to learn more about the structure of this nationwide movement, what makes it so unique, and the things that bind us together, regardless of the programs or individuals that we serve. Anyone who is employed by or has a stake in the work of a Community Action Agency is invited to participate in this training.

  • Coming Soon: Missouri CAN Legislative Relationship Survey
  • Amendment 3 passes in Missouri, which effectively rolls back "Clean Missouri" and means there will NOT be a non-partisan demographer. Boundary lines for political maps will be redrawn to disenfranchise communities of color and communities with large populations of children.  Missouri CAN opposed this amendment.
