We have been serving the needs of our citizens for more than 41 years, beginning
in 1965 when President Lyndon Johnson waged his “War on Poverty.” Over these 41 years our programs have evolved and expanded to keep pace with the constantly changing needs of our citizens. We strive to stay in touch with the real needs of the people and find or develop programs that will best serve those needs. We have a diverse funding base ranging from federal to state and local governments, as well as private foundations and corporations.
