Utah Community Action’s mission is to empower individuals, strengthen families and build communities through self-sufficiency and education programs. They set themselves apart by offering care that starts with solving immediate challenges and continues with programs that provide ongoing support and empowerment. Through Utah Community Action’s Adult Education program, adults with low- to moderate-income levels get access to courses and certifications like English as a Second Language and high school diplomas. Access to these different areas helps each individual work towards self-sufficiency. Also offered is a Head Start program that provides education and health services to young children who would otherwise not be prepared for kindergarten. They do this by helping children develop important social and emotional skills. By removing barriers and providing access to education it helps to build and strengthen the community.
