"The Community Action Partnership for Dutchess County aims to partner with individuals and families to eliminate poverty and identify the resources and opportunities available to them to enhance their self-reliance." With your help, we can make a difference.

News & Notes

The national office of the Community Action Partnership designates May as National Community Action Month to recognize Community Action Agencies’ work fighting poverty on the local level. Each year, Community Action Agencies help 20 million Americans achieve financial stability through programs such as Dress for Success, Weatherization, RSVP, job training and placement, financial education, housing, energy assistance, and transportation.

This past Thursday, the Retired and Seniors Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Dutchess County welcomed over 200 seniors to its annual volunteer recognition breakfast.
