Pathways to Success Podcast Episode 2 Graphic

More than 50 years ago, Community Action Agencies played an important role in the War Against Poverty. Today, as we continue to recover from the pandemic, community action agencies are leading the way. Learn how the agencies partner with the community to help people experiencing poverty.

March 2020, the pandemic shut down schools, crippled the economy and threatened the health of Wisconsinites. In Milwaukee County and around the country, residents turned to an institution they’ve trusted for more than 50 years – Community Action Agencies.
