Our Programs

The Merced County Community Action Agency works hard to ensure that the programs we administer in our community are in close alignment with our mission, “To serve, advocate, and collaborate for those in need by developing innovative strategies for self-empowerment.”

Our programs utilize a comprehensive, innovative, approach that not only provides direct access to services that meet customer’s immediate needs, but guidance towards the customer’s long-term self-sufficiency and the flexibility to change as needs in the community change.

Our major programs include the Women, Infants and Children Program (W.I.C.), Preschool Centers, Homeless and Housing Services, Utility Assistance, Home Weatherization, A.I.D.S Programs, and Resource and Referral Services. In addition to our major programs, we provide support to our programs with a summer lunch feeding program, holiday food distributions, a community garden, bicycle repair, catered meals, and administration of the Homeless Management Information Database (HMIS).

Please take the time to explore our website, which provides detailed information on each program.
