CAAS' mission is to help local families and individuals achieve financial security while working to eliminate the root causes of economic injustice.

Community Action Agency of Somerville (CAAS) has been the federally designated anti-poverty agency serving Somerville, Massachusetts since 1981. CAAS’ mission is to help local families and individuals achieve financial security while working to eliminate the root causes of economic injustice. Each year we leverage the work of some 70 employees, 100 volunteers and roughly $6 million in federal, state, local and private funding.

CAAS’ holistic approach to community work and wrap-around services considers the web of connections between housing, physical and mental health, employment, nutrition, immigration, education, transportation, family composition, civic engagement, etc., and CAAS supports clients in these areas and more through direct services or referral. 

CAAS' core programs are: Head Start (a free preschool program), Housing Advocacy Program (HAP), Community Organizing & Advocacy, and Free Tax Preparation Assistance (VITA).
