The Great Recession continues to have a devastating effect on Jefferson County families and individuals. Since the 2008 economic downturn, the Action Center has experienced a 40% increase in requests for food, shelter, clothing and services.
With more comprehensive, efficient ways of connecting people with resources,
the Action Center can better meet basic human needs and promote pathways to self-sufficiency. Our capital campaign is designed to do just that – improve and expand our antiquated space to better serve our Jefferson County neighbors.
