Community Action is a large Columbia-based service agency serving 8
Mid-Missouri, counties including Howard.
Its mission is to empower individual families to
achieve self-reliance, believing social change cannot happen without
involvement of the entire community. CMCA's organizing strategy is an
intentional initiative designed to address local causes and conditions
of poverty. Community organizers work to ensure families are able to
meet basic needs, as well as promote opportunities for lifelong
learning. Many agencies are under the CMCA umbrella. Example: Head
Start. Darin Pries is the CMCA executive director; Audrey Phelps is the
community organizer for Cooper and Howard Counties.
