Community Action Commission of Fayette County
The mission of the Community Action Commission of Fayette County is to combat causes of poverty, expand community services, and implement projects necessary to provide services and further community improvements.
The mission of Self-Help Housing is to facilitate the production of affordable housing and the development of sustainable communities throughout Fayette and surrounding counties in Ohio. We provide safe, permanent, affordable housing and supportive services for low and moderate income individuals and families.
Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World is a 45-hour workshop that helps individuals in poverty build their resources for a more prosperous life for themselves, their families, and their communities. Getting Ahead provides people in poverty with the same information found in Bridges Out of Poverty, which was developed for professionals and others in the community working to end poverty. Please visit our Bridges page for more details on how to schedule a training or how to become a mentor for individuals graduating from the Getting Ahead program.
