Community Progress Council, York County's Community action agency, empowers individuals and families to move toward self-sufficiency and advocate for change to promote community growth. We work with low- and moderate-income people of all ages in York County to examine their current situations and determine how our programs best align with their needs.

Our services don't stop at emergency assistance, but rather create a bridge from crisis to self-sufficiency. By moving beyond stopgaps, our programs provide stability and structure to empower individuals to rise above poverty, identify long-term goals and move themselves toward independence from external assistance.
