Central Missouri Community Action Charity Profile
CMCA’s history is one filled with change, growth and helping people achieve self-reliance. Operating as a non-profit agency for over 40 years, CMCA has experienced as well as championed change in the communities it serves.
Initially offering one employment program intended to serve only Boone county, the regional need for a community action agency spurred its growth to become what it is today; an agency operating in eight counties to help those in poverty by providing an array of services and creating a network of support.
Starting as a single county CAA in 1965 and growing to an 8-agency serving eight counties, CMCA’s desire and ability to adapt to the needs of those in poverty and develop innovative approaches, have been paramount in allowing them to remain in the forefront in the war on poverty. Being proactive in the community has also helped prepare CMCA for the many changes it has undergone. However, one constant goal in a sea of change has been CMCA’s mission: to help income eligible individuals and families achieve self-reliance through partnerships with the community.
