What We Do

West Central Community Action Empowering Families and Individuals to Achieve their Highest Potential.

WCCA provides a variety of human service programs to residents in southwest Iowa. WCCA reaches out and provides a full range of coordinated programs in the communities we serve by addressing the client’s needs through a comprehensive approach, developing partnerships with other community organizations, and involving low-income clients in the agency’s operations to have a measurable impact on eliminating poverty. Our objective is to aid people to become responsible, independent, self-reliant members of society.

West Central Community Action Outreach Offices provide client intake, assessments, referrals, and coordination with other community resources. All 10 of WCCA’s counties have an outreach office, which may also maintain a food pantry and/or clothing room. Outreach staff strive to assist low-income families in becoming financially self-sufficient. A wide variety of programs, services and referrals reflect this accomplishment. Staff also work closely with local organizations to ensure non-duplication of services and to maximize resources for helping families resolve poverty issues and achieving their highest potential.
