Community Action in southern New Mexico


Abstract: The national Community Action program began in the 1960s to serve as a focal point in local communities for the war on poverty. Programs were established in a majority of counties across the U.S., including some in rural areas. Many programs continue to thrive today, and in mostly rural southern New Mexico, a highly productive Community Action Agency is paving the way to financial stability and success for thousands of low-income working families.
