Cole, Executive Director 50 West Broad Street, Suite 1616 Columbus, OH 43215 phone: 614-224-8500 fax: 614-224-2587 www.oacaa.org The Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies (OACAA) exists to support, unify, and strengthen the Community Action Network in Ohio. Serving the needs of low-income families and individuals, Ohioâ€™s forty-eight Community Action Agencies provide resources and opportunities to alleviate poverty and help all Ohioans become fully self-sufficient. Each independent nonprofit agency is locally controlled and provides services unique to their communities so that low-income households can overcome their unique barriers. Agencies take a holistic approach to not only assist with the emergency needs of today but to build a foundation for long-term success tomorrow. Our network employs 6,000 people who administer over $450 million and serve nearly 800,000 Ohioans annually. Our 50-year history of helping people and changing lives not only seeks solutions to strengthen families but also communities.
