WELCOME LETTER from the President

Welcome to the Georgia Community Action Agency Association (GCAA) Website. This site was developed for our members and the public. The GCAA has 20 agency members and hundreds of individual members representing the majority of the 159 counties in the state of Georgia.

The association provides, training, technical assistance and information on issues that are critical to our members as each member agency carry out their local organization’s purpose and mission.

While each organization is uniquely different we have one common interest and that is to help individuals and families find ways to matriculate out of poverty. As a member ship organization we realize that there are multiple approaches that are needed to tackle the problems of poverty in all our communities. As an association we realize that poverty has many causes and these causes are different for each community in which our members provide services.

To help the association and our our member agencies accomplish our missions requires the human and financial support of federal, state and local governments as well as private foundations, United Ways, the business community, private individuals who volunteer and who make personal contributions, religious organizations, and social and civic organizations. It is these partnerships that help our network help families and individuals transition out of poverty. The continued support of our partners is critical to finding new and innovative ways to address poverty in all our communities in Georgia. Our member agencies services are both similar and unique, as are the communities in which our member agencies operate in rural and urban settings.

Please bookmark our website (http://www.georgiacaa.org), where you will find complete information on all our member agencies, training, training resources and activities of our state association.
