History & Mission
The Eastern Nebraska Community Action Partnership is a nonprofit private organization established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. We help people to help themselves in achieving self-sufficiency. We are one of nine Nebraska Community Action Agencies that serve the poor and our specific territory covers Douglas and Sarpy Counties. We also serve nutrition programs to residents of Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge, and Washington County.
As a Community Action Agency, we are a part of a national network that is the primary source of direct support to more than 34.5 million people who live in poverty across the United States. The majority of our clients are extremely poor, with incomes below 75% of the poverty threshold, or $9,735 for a family of three (the average family size for the client population).
