Welcome to the HHWP Community Action Commission’s Website!
We are committed to helping low and moderate income residents of our service area improve their living conditions by creating needed resources, increasing skills, and stimulating the motivation to help people help themselves. We offer a variety of services and projects designed to accomplish these purposes. Some of these services are located in particular counties or areas, and have varying eligibility requirements, so please click on the Program buttons that are of interest to you to learn more. We are always welcome to new ideas, and working with other area agencies, local governments, and private companies in collaborative efforts. The Contact button above will provide general CAC management contact information, and each Program button also has more specific contacts for each program. Our central administrative office is located at 122 Jefferson Street in Findlay, but our mailing address is P.O. Box 179, Findlay, OH 45839, and our telephone number is 419-423-3755 or 800-423-4304. If you have any comments about this website, or the CAC activities in general, please contact us!
ATTENTION GOLF FANS! The CAC's Head Start program has been named a recipient of funds provided by the LPGA's Marathon Golf Classic in Toledo being held July 13 - 19. Proceeds will be used to acquire OAE Hearing Screening machines to serve children with certain language/communication barriers; Masimo Pronto machines that provide needle-less hemoglobin readings to detect anemia; and Stretchkins exercisers to help combat obesity. When purchasing tickets at "www.marathonclassic.com", please select "HHWP CAC' from the list of charities, and those proceeds will come to our Head Start program. Thanks!!!

We currently have job openings in our Head Start Program for teachers, assistant and sub teachers; and we need more HATS sub van drivers. Please contact Brandi Ferguson at 419-423-3755 for details, or email "email@example.com".
BUDGET ALERT!! The continuation of the Community Services Block Grant is currently being debated in Washington. Those funds provide the "core" funding of Community Action agencies, like ours, all over the country. Without adequate CSBG funds, many CAA's may be forced to close their doors, and not be able to provide some of the social service programs funded through other streams. Multi-county CAA's are the most cost-effective way to deliver quality services over a regional area, rather than splitting up some services among many other nonprofits. CHECK IT OUT!!
