Lloyd Throne talks about Community Action and RCAA


Redwood Community Action Agency (RCAA) is a locally based, private non-profit organization that provides a wide range of services to low and moderate income residents of Humboldt County. Our long-term goal is to develop programs through which people can become self-sufficient and empowered to improve their own lives. There are 52 Community Action Agencies in California and approximately 1,100 nationwide.

The concept of community action has been part of the American social fabric for over thirty-five years. The primary mission of this nationwide movement is to "eliminate the paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty."
