ABOUT HHWP CAC
The HHWP Community Action Commission is a private, nonprofit corporation created in 1965 to combat poverty in our service area. Our primary service area is bounded by Hancock, Hardin, Wyandot, and Putnam counties. However, some of our activities do occur outside these counties.
Our Mission statement reads:
“The HHWP Community Action Commission is dedicated to advocating on behalf of and providing direct services to the low-income residents of our service area. We are committed to creating opportunities for individuals and families to improve the quality of their lives and to assist them to obtain the skills and motivation necessary to strive for self-sufficiency.” To accomplish the Mission, the Agency will collect and analyze data on the nature of poverty and the existing resources in the area. The Agency will involve public and private agencies, and the population to be served, in developing action plans to address needed services. These activities shall include helping other agencies to improve and expand their services, and assisting with the development of new organizations. The Agency will seek out governmental and private resources to initiate and administer innovative programs in such areas as employment, education, housing development, transportation, health, emergency needs, food/nutrition, advocacy, etc.
We have satellite offices, clinics, and classrooms around the four-county area, so please check the Program button for more specific information. And, programs and services are constantly changing, as funding resources change and new ideas and projects are developed. Currently we have approximately 165 employees, and our annual funding fluctuates between $7M and $10M dollars a year, depending on changing programs and projects. We have an Agency-wide audit each year by independent certified auditors, as well as specific funding source audits periodically. Our central office is handicap accessible, as are many of our satellite sites. We are an equal opportunity employer and service provider, and all of our services and programs are available without regard to race, sex, age, national origin, handicapping conditions, and religious or political affiliations.
