Jefferson County

Community Action Council, Inc.

Our Mission

The CAC is Continuing A Commitment to restore and revitalize the quality of life in Jefferson County, and move the residents towards self-sufficiency. We achieve this goal by adapting and providing programs that are accessible, affordable, and culturally-sensitive to meet the needs of the community

Our History

The Jefferson County Community Action Council, Inc. is a private non-profit organization, established in 1965 – one of a nationwide network of Community Action Agencies. As mandated by federal law, it is operated by a Board of Directors made up of one-third representation from the low-income sector; one-third governmental representation; and one-third private. The Chief Executive Officer, Michael McGlumphy, has served in his capacity since 2016.

Meeting the needs of Jefferson County residents will always be first priority for the CAC; collaboration with other community agencies has become one of the most efficient ways to accomplish this goal. Since the CAC competes for grants to fund its programming, it enjoys the flexibility of designing its services to fit community needs.

Most CAC services are offered to Jefferson County residents free of any charge. Programs are based on income-eligibility. All participation in programming is entirely voluntary.
