Our Mission

Our mission is “to create opportunities for people to improve their quality of life.” As the smallest CAP agency in Maine, we aim to make a big impact on Waldo county citizens by expanding opportunities for health, comfort, and financial and personal development.

Our Promise

Community Action changes peoples lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America better place to live. We care about the entire communities and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

Our Vision

Waldo Community Action Partners was founded in 1965. The mission is “To create opportunities for people to improve their quality of life.”

Waldo Community Action Partners provides leadership and advocacy in the community to collaborate and develop programs and workgroups that address community problems and obstacles that prevent families from thriving. Elimination and alleviation of poverty in the areas of body, mind and spirit is our ultimate goal and service and advocacy are the primary tools.

Waldo Community Action Partners provides programs and services to support members of our community as they strive to lead meaningful and productive lives. We have strong commitments to Transportation Services, Housing Repair Services, Family Services such as Head Start/Child Nutrition, Energy Services, and Community Services carried out in partnership with other community groups.

We hold the following declarations as guidance for the work we do:

  • Every member of our community desires self-sufficiency and has an innate capacity with appropriate supports
  • Every member of the community has the right to be treated with dignity and respect
  • Every member of the community, regardless of economic status, should have a voice in the way of the state and federal policies and programs are developed and operated.

Waldo Community Action Partners has committed to:

  • Respectful and dignified treatment of clients
  • Responsible governance
  • Exemplary fiscal management
  • Thoughtful and deliberate use of technology
