NYSCAA, From Poverty to Opportunity Tour 2014

nyscaaIn 2014, The New York State Community Action Association will undertake a statewide public education and outreach effort to confront myths and misconceptions about poverty and to highlight the successful anti-poverty programs and community and family services provided by Community Action Agencies (CAAs). NYSCAA and its community and statewide partners will convene public awareness events, host training and technical assistance programs, and coordinate media outreach efforts to create a coordinated, statewide effort to promote public dialogue and increase knowledge about poverty and Community Action.

We recently held a webinar on the tour, giving an overview and explaining how Community Action Agencies can become involved.
