Community Action is fulfilling our mission during COVID-19. We’ve made many changes to keep clients, staff and community safe.
We are offering our services by phone, online, email, and safely in person in the community. Starting July 6, we will open our lobbies for an additional access point. We are encouraging community members to continue using our remote services first. Masking will be required to enter all Community Action facilities.

Our mission is to stabilize lives, equip people to meet their goals, and build a stronger, more equitable Skagit County.

Our vision is a community in which everyone works together to end poverty in Skagit County.

We are guided by those we serve in our community, we believe that all of us can change the values, beliefs, and policies that create equitable systems. We recognize that the roots of poverty are embedded in trauma, oppression, and inequity. We have a lot to learn by listening to people with this lived experience in poverty, homelessness, and inequity based on race and other identities. We support and encourage increased leadership and representation by people who have not had an opportunity to be a voice at the table.

Stabilizing Lives

We believe in the strength and potential of people and offer several programs that provide basic needs, from housing to energy assistance.

Equipping Families for Success

We believe in the power of neighbor helping neighbor to help move people beyond a crisis and towards a more self-sustaining life.

Building Stronger Communities

We create a thriving community for all when we work together.
