Lorain County Community Action Agency

Season 09
About this non-profit:

Lorain, Ohio is a community on the brink. Fueled by the steel mills in its heyday, the city has had to grapple with rising unemployment and poverty as the economy has turned away from manufacturing--and this city's very livelihood. The Lorain County Community Action Agency, an anti-poverty group, is actively dealing with the fallout from these changes, helping people find ways out of poverty and the challenges of everyday life. Whether it's their GED program, Head Start, or assisted living, Community Action has a program for every stage of a person's life. On the broader level, their goal is to help Lorain define its future and to find hope and inspiration in its past
