Recently Lakes & Prairies Community Action Agency celebrated its 49th Anniversary. That is 49 years of working with and for low-income children, families, seniors throughout our service area. It is also 49 years of working as a partner to improve the quality of life in our communities.
Our mission is Eliminate Poverty. Empower Families. Engage Communities. A very important part of how we do this is by making sure that our Board of Directors has 1/3 of its membership representing low-income people. Who can better tell the story or identify the barriers that a person experiencing poverty is living with? Giving a voice to those in need keeps the programming relevant to needs that are local and results in decisions come about and are implemented locally - not in St. Paul or Washington, D.C.
Helping individuals in their goals to achieve self-sufficiency is a commitment to empowering individuals. Whether it is providing information on child care, a workshop on financial literacy, information on tax benefits, parenting classes, information on the latest laws regarding Medicare or prescription drug cards, assistance to prevent homelessness, or other services... we work to help people move from Surviving to Thriving.
