Helping People, Changing Lives - Building Communities
Who We Are and What We Do

Central Oklahoma Community Action Agency is a member of a nationwide network of 1,100 Community Action Agencies and serves six counties in central Oklahoma: Cleveland, Lincoln, Logan, Payne, Pottawatomie, and Seminole.

Central Oklahoma Community Action Agency helps low-income individuals and families avoid crisis situations in two ways; meeting emergency needs first, then helping families gain self-sufficiency through supportive case management and partnerships with other social service providers.

History

The Community Action movement dates back to 1964 as part of the Federal Economic Opportunity Act. Community Action Agencies are locally managed with a volunteer board of directors that includes low-income people, public officials, and representatives from the community sector.

Community Action Agencies are not government agencies and rely on donations from the general public and program-specific, restricted grants from private foundations and state and federal government.*

* While COCAA is not a government agency, it is considered a political subdivision of the State of Oklahoma but only for purposes of the Oklahoma Governmental Tort Claims Act.
