Who Are We?
South Central Iowa Community Action Program provides services to more than 4,500 people every year. We are the Community Action Agency for Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Monroe and Wayne Counties in Iowa, and we have been in business since July 1965.
The Agency is led by a fifteen-member volunteer Board of Directors, and we have a staff of about 85 great people.
OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE
In collaboration with community partners, the mission of South Central Iowa Community Action Program is to provide advocacy and services for persons striving for economic security while preserving their dignity and bring about change for the benefit of the people we serve and the community at large.
We want you to be satisfied with the response you receive from South Central Iowa Community Action Program. We do our best to give each person great customer service, but when we miss that target, I want to hear from you so we can improve. I would also like to hear from you if you received great service.
Let us know how we are doing.

Community Action works best when many people join our work.

Are we doing our job?
Please read our public reports and decide for yourself. We provide reports on this website so the public can monitor how well we are delivering our services. Feel free to review our financial reports, our Federal Tax return, and our Strategic Plan. We also publish dashboard reports each month to monitor our own progress.
