Wright County Community Action (WCCA) was founded and has been in continuous service to the community since 1965. We are a private, 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and the designated Community Action Agency serving residents of Wright County. We also administer Head Start services in the western 1/3 of Hennepin County.
Over the course of our 52 years in this community, we’ve actively pursued our mission through a range of programs that target safe housing, hunger, nutrition, education, energy assistance, and a variety of other services that promote economic independence for people with low incomes.
We strive to address economic disadvantage and community development with a multifaceted approach that individually confronts each challenge faced by low-income families. At our core, we strive to help the people we serve build a path to a brighter, more secure future, and we’re constantly looking for new ways to serve through innovative programs and community partnerships.
If you or someone you know is in need of one of our programs, please let us know. We’d love to see what we can do to help.
Within this plan you will find a working document that outlines specific goals, objectives and strategies which address key issues that were highlighted throughout the process. WCCA expects continued growth in the next several years and this plan will allow us to stay on track and do what is best for our staff, our partners and our community.
In our Vision statement, it says that we envision a Wright County where residents feel happy, healthy, secure, and connected. That statement is so profoundly true. We dream of a county full of people who are empowered to build their best lives, and we never stop looking for new ways to serve. My message to you is this: please, join us.
If you are looking for a way to serve your community, look here. We need your gifts and talents.
If you are looking for a place where your investment will pay dividends for years to come, partner with us. Your donation can truly change lives.
If you or someone you know is in need of help, let us know. We want to help you get back on your feet.Community outreach is a group effort. It takes all of us working together toward a common goal, and I’m so glad for the chance to serve with all of you. Jay Weatherford, Executive Director
