The Stark County Community Action Agency is a non-profit anti-poverty organization in Stark County… but what do they do?
The SCCAA helps to improve the lives of over 20,000 individuals annually. According to their website, 13.2% of local people live in poverty and 5.6% of children under 5 live in poverty in Stark County. With this in mind, the SCCAA works to “promote economic self-sufficiency among low-income families and individuals of Stark County.”
