SUPPORT OUR WORK - Lake County is one of the wealthiest counties in IL. However, aggregate statistics mask the areas of poverty that exist in the county. Community Action Foundation was founded in 2013 to address the growing need for the private sector and local stakeholders to partner with Community Action Partnership. Community Action is bigger than the 6 programs we operate. 1. Head Start, 2. Adventure Kids after-school program, 3. Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), 4. Youth and Family Services, (self-sufficiency case management, emergency assistance, post-secondary scholarships), 5. Home Weatherization, and 6. Affordable Housing programs for families and Veterans.
