Ronald Collier,  Executive Director 

 " My goal as Executive Director is to rebrand the agency as an organization that not only help people but, also create opportunities for those who want to become independently viable in their everyday life; to move the agency toward social entrepreneurship as we teach our consumers the principles of becoming self-sustaining . It is important that we teach individuals that opportunities for success are available through education, job training, stable employment, and hard work."

"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."
