about us

The Action Center’s mission is to provide an immediate response to basic human needs and promote pathways to self-sufficiency for Jefferson County residents and the homeless.

Our vision is to be a fluid and financially sound agency that identifies and responds to the basic human needs of the residents of Jefferson County.

Since 1968, The Action Center has been committed to expanding and refining its services to meet client’s ever-changing needs. In the summer of 2011, The Action Center launched a new brand including a new logo and a slight modification to its name. The new look holds the same dedication, compassion and caring values that the organization was built upon and will only increase the ability to broaden The Action Center’s reach in the community ensuring that clients are treated with open arms and receive the best possible services.
