Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission takes its mission seriously - they invest their resources wisely in their community and the people they serve. They are creative and innovative in how they work; are visionary leaders when it comes to solving problems; and are conservators of donors' dollars - be it a grant from the local, state or federal dollars or the individual donor giving their annual gift.

I am the regional trainer for the Dept for Community Based Services. I have had NKCAC come to staff meetings to talk to staff about the programs they provide to the public. I always tell new staff if they are looking for a resource for a family to contact NKCAC. I add that if they do not have the resource needed they will know who does or help the family locate it. I am very impressed with the services provided as well as communtiy outreach for its programs.

The NKCAC provides a host of appropriate and targeted programs in response to the diverse needs of the Northern Ky community. They have been instrumental in forming cooperative relationships among both private and religious organizations who are providing services in order to reduce duplication and increase the range of services available to recipients--and to minimize misuse of services. The feedback I have heard from recipients is that they are treated with respect and that the service providers are responsive.

The organization works hard to keep its partners informed about resources as well as working with clients. They are a wonderful organization and strive to collaborate with the local community. They truly live the "it takes a village" analogy.

I have been involved with NKCAC for a number of years. As I sit on the Finance committee, I get to see the good work the Agency does from a different point of view. The success they have had over the years is reflected in their sound financial position. I have met many of the staff and volunteers and know they are dedicated to serving thos who need the Agencys services. They do a fantastic job.

NKCAC has been a wonderful resource for the community, both of my girls attended 2 years each of Head Start, the staff there was always welcoming and informative. If we had concerns or help with resources I always knew where to turn. I know they have continued to expand their programs and I have heard wonderful things.
When I started working in Non-Profit (Brighton Center) myself, I was always able to turn to the great people at NKCAC if our programs weren't sufficient. They offer some of the best programs in the community and I hope they are always there!

As a person who works with families in need, NKYCAC is an invaluable resource. They help in a multitude of ways with what I know is sometimes strapped funding.
