Mission:
Mission:
The mission of the Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency, Inc. is to assist people to achieve and sustain self-sufficiency and self-dignity.

Vision:
1.     Empower 100% of those seeking assistance the opportunity to achieve self-sufficiency.
2.     Become the premier Human Service provider in Cayuga and Seneca Counties.
3.     Become the premier organization in Cayuga and Seneca Counties known for organizational excellence and continuous improvement.
4.     Become the employer of choice.
5.     Become self-sufficient as an organization.
Results:
Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency has had many achievements throughout its history such as starting new programs that were so successful they became self-sufficient organizations. For example, the Agency ran a housing program in the early 1970’s that evolved into Cayuga County Homsite Development Corporation, a Rural Preservation Company, which provides safe, decent and affordable housing for very low to moderate income families. It also helped start the local Big Brothers Big Sisters and the community health clinic that became East Hill Family Medical. In addition to the ongoing process of identifying and meeting immediate community needs, the Agency is very proud to share the following achievements:
1. Created innovative programs to meet the community’s growing needs: green jobs training, asset
development, and transportation case management.
2. Implemented successful, evidence-based programs such as Healthy Families and Early Head Start and expanded successful programs such as Head Start.
3. Rapidly expanded our weatherization services – more than tripling production while maintaining high quality services.
