HISTORY AND MISSION

The Capital Area Community Action Agency, Inc. (CACAA), is a private non-profit organization-501(c)(3), as determined by the U.S. Internal Service Code that originally charted in 1965 as the Leon County-Tallahassee Community Action Program to serve only Leon county residents. In 1980, it assumed sponsorship of antipoverty programs in Gadsden, Jefferson, Calhoun, Liberty, Franklin and a portion of Gulf counties. The name was then changed to compliment the expanded service area.

The Board of Directors are the governing body for the agency, and the Executive Director is the Chief of Operations. The board members are volunteers that are either elected or appointed to represent the public, private and poor sectors of the population. There is equitable distribution of representation of private businesses, governmental and community – based agencies, and the low-income population.

The primary mission of the agency is to provide a comprehensive, seamless system of services and resources to reduce the detrimental effects of poverty, empower low-income citizens with skills and motivation to become self-sufficient, and improve the overall quality of their lives, and our community.
