The Promise of Community Action
The Promise of Community Action- Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
Considering the community action promise, Gateway Community Action reviewed our existing mission statement to determine if it captured the desired spirit of the agency and community action movement. We also envisioned what the future impact would be on our communities if the agency and our stakeholders were to achieve what they set out to do and achieve our mission, goals and objectives.
