Welcome to the Williamsburg-James City County Community Action Agency. We are a public-private partnership, locally managed and controlled by volunteer boards of directors for the purpose of reducing poverty and promoting self-sufficiency of the poor.  Since their founding under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, the network of Community Action Agency’s has become a real safety net for America's low-income population.  Community Action Agency’s serve both the long-term and the temporary poor, public assistance recipients and the working poor; the low-income elderly, handicapped and children of the unemployed, the homeless and any other population that meets the eligibility criterion.

VISION

All individuals within Williamsburg/ James City County will have the skills and opportunities necessary to maintain economic self-sufficiency.

MISSION
To help individuals and families obtain the skills and find the opportunities that will move them toward self-reliance; to provide assistance when necessary; and to educate the public in Williamsburg and James City County about the causes and effects of, as well as the solutions to poverty.

The Williamsburg-James City County Community Action Agency is holding its 11th  annual Community of STARS banquet on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the Colonial Heritage Golf Club at 6500 Arthur Hills Drive in Williamsburg, Virginia.  The purpose of the event is to celebrate W-JCC CAA’s 46 years and to honor exemplary individuals and groups who have strengthened and enhanced the Agency by contributing their time, energy, and/or resources. Please click the flyer below for the complete list of 2014 “Community of STARS” honorees.

 Proceeds from the fundraising banquet will assist W-JCC Community Action Agency in continuing its successful Head Start program as well as its other youth/family and community programs.  We serve over 2,300 individuals and families within the Greater Williamsburg area every year, yet it is getting harder and harder due to state and federal funding cuts, along with cost increase to run programs and to provide services. We Need Your Help!
