Byrd Barr Place is honored to celebrate May as a Community Action Agency along with hundreds of non-profits across the country, working together to change people’s lives, embody the spirit of hope and improve communities! Together we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other. Community Action (CAA) has put a human face on poverty for 52 years by advocating for limited-income citizens without a voice, so that they may enter the middle class and reach for the American dream, replacing their despair with opportunity. So what does that mean for us here in Washington State? Over 645,000 people in Washington have benefited from CAA services annually, and Byrd Barr Place delivers services to the local Seattle community with Energy Assistance, Housing Assistance, a Food Bank, Financial Education, and advocacy initiatives. Visit these sites to learn about the Washington State and national impact of CAA, and help us spread the word! #BeCommunityAction
