The Community Action Agency of Anne Arundel County is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower people in reducing poverty and building resilient communities. There are many ways to give and support our work, and whatever way you choose, your gift is most appreciated towards breaking the cycle of poverty by Helping People and Changing Lives!
Since 1965, Community Action Agency of Anne Arundel County, Inc. has worked to bring help, hope, opportunity and change to thousands of impoverished families in Anne Arundel County. We are the designated anti-poverty agency for all of Anne Arundel County.
Our mission is to help individuals and families living below, at or near poverty income levels improve their economic conditions and become self-reliant. Our programs support social change and address the root causes of problems in addition to addressing the consequences of those problems. Our goal is to influence the county, communities, systems and institutions and not just the individuals.
