Over 40% of Gloucester residents are burdened with housing costs, spending more than 30% of their income on rent or mortgage each month.
For a lot of our neighbors, it’s hard to pay the bills, afford food, or save money for an emergency. Too many local people are living in poverty or right on the edge, where one lost paycheck can have devastating effects on a family.
55 YEARS AGO, local residents began Action Inc. to provide stability and hope for people in our community. They made a commitment to support their neighbors through hard times and together, they laid the foundation for a stronger, more caring community for everyone.
TOGETHER we’ve built programs and resources that have strengthened our community and helped individuals and families weather past crises. Thanks to compassionate community members like you, we have provided hope and opportunity to tens of thousands of Cape Ann families. THANK YOU for joining us to advocate for ALL the people in our community.
Action Inc. is a non-profit organization and a member of the Community Action Partnership, a nationwide network of more than a thousand agencies dedicated to finding real solutions to local needs. Since our founding in 1965, Action Inc. has worked hand-in-hand with the Cape Ann community and our partners at the local, state, and national levels to develop an array of programs and services that address the underlying causes of poverty.
