Agency Mission

It is the mission of Cumberland Community Action Program, Inc. to develop and operate projects that promote the economic and social well-being of individuals, children, families, and communities.

Guiding Principle

Taking a comprehensive approach means that CCAP engages clients to provide services on a hierarchy of needs from basic (foundational) needs to learning and growing, services then transition to focus on work life, asset building, and finally to giving back. Throughout each step in the economic ladder of success, clients are encouraged and guided by caring, qualified CCAP staff. This proven mission of service yields measurable results as evidenced in our successes each and every year. Take a look at our 2012 community impact.
