2014 State of Poverty in Missouri Report


Missouri Association for

Community Action

We are a statewide association of community action agencies fighting poverty in Missouri.

Poverty is a formidable foe, impacting thousands of  Missourians. But, it's not an impossible one. Each day, we win battles against poverty, family by family. Community action agencies provide critical services to strengthen families and communities. We assist with childcare so parents can obtain education to improve their job opportunities. We find solutions to transportation obstacles so people can get to work. We weatherize homes to reduce energy costs. We help families save to buy homes of their own. These and other community action agencies help families work their way to self-sufficiency.

We are an association with a vision: "United in purpose, the Missouri Community Action Network will inspire and engage people to ensure that all families and communities thrive."

The Missouri Association for Community Action - MACA - supports the vision  through advocacy, training, awareness, technical assistance, and resource development.   Our mission is to be an effective advocate in policy and program development which impacts low-income families and to strengthen the capacity of Missouri's Community action agencies.
