MCCAA has been helping people, improving families and strengthening communities for over 50 years. MCCAA is a private, non-profit Community Action Agency with the goal of providing services, training, and advocacy to individuals to help them become economically self-sufficient. There is an old proverb that says, “Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he can eat for a lifetime”. They agree that it is more worthwhile to teach someone to do something than to do it for them. They are grateful for their many partners in the communities they serve and will continue to improve on their services as they all work together to have a better community for everyone.
