It is the mission of Community Action Duluth
to use innovative strategies
that mobilize low-income people and the broader community
to build assets that prevent poverty, create equality, and
strengthen our social fabric.
We envision a community where individuals and families can prosper, with access to quality education, affordable housing, healthcare, gainful employment, and meaningful involvement in civic life.
We believe community coordinated partnerships empower people with low incomes to find the support, resources, and relationships they need to overcome economic, racial, and/or cultural barriers that prevent them from establishing and maintaining self-sufficient and connected lives.
We value the strengths and assets of all people and organizations with whom we partner.
We believe in listening honestly, processing information accurately, and following through on our commitments.
- Cultural Competence
We value meaningful relationships between people of diverse cultural, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
We believe it is possible for Duluth residents and organizations to improve the quality of life for everyone.
