HOW WE KNOW WHAT'S NEEDED
Every three years, we do in-depth surveys to get real stories and information from people we live and work with. Their answers shape the work we do. The Community Needs Assessment is available for anyone to read.COMMUNITY NEEDS ASSESMENT
Our vision is a community that celebrates our shared humanity as well as our diversity. We strive to build a community that invests in access for everyone to healthy food; safe, affordable housing; living wage work; high quality, affordable education from birth; and full participation in the democratic process. In service to that vision, Community Action Pioneer Valley relies on the leadership of people who have low incomes to define how we approach our work. We advocate for policies and resources that protect the vulnerable and disenfranchised, and open opportunity to all. Working with many partners, we create a community where children and youth are nurtured and protected, and everyone achieves their potential and prospers in the fullness of life.
