Northwest Community Action Center

Northwest Community Action Center Mission:

To create measurable change that will empower at-risk and economically disadvantaged individuals and families to achieve a greater level of self-sufficiency.

The Northwest Community Action Center, located in Toppenish, Washington, develops and oversees programs that support our communities in three fundamental ways: family services; employment and training; and education services.
