Public Policy & Advocacy

What We Stand For

CAFCA and Connecticut’s Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are committed to advocating for public policies that advance social justice and economic opportunity for all.

We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to realize their potential and fully participate in society, the economy, and their community.

The Promise of Community Action:

“Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.”

CAFCA collaborates with local, state, and federal community partners to help address the causes and conditions of poverty.
