Kinship Live Virtual Webinar Training – Get to Know Your Community Resources: Who or What is Community Action?

August 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Get to know your community resources

As a part of our growing series on knowing your Community Resources, we want to introduce Community Action Services. Community action is a vital resource serving every county in Kentucky and provides many resources to families throughout the Commonwealth. As stated on the capky website, Community Action agencies “provide life-changing resources to support an array of service areas including food security, transportation, home energy, early childhood education, senior support, emergency services, housing, workforce development, family advocacy, and more” (https://www.capky.org/about-us/). While the services can differ based on the county, Community Action allows for local-level decision making to identify and plan programs that can be most beneficial to each specific community.

Join us for this informative webinar and learn how Community Action works within the community to provide hope and support to many of Kentucky’s families!
