Review for Williamsburg - James City County Community Action Agency, Inc., Williamsburg, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The WJCC Community Action Agency is a top notch organization that really helps clients, by empowering clients with real tools to improving their lives. They also promote community improvement from the works of those who live in the community. They do a lot with limited funding. They are the people who know how to feed a 100 people well with one chicken. The really maximize the use of their dollars, stretching so all can benefit from it's use. They have multiple programs: Head Start, drop out prevention programs, family literacy, Legal services for low-income, community development organizarion, community food gardens, and many more. The agency is comprehensive in the way it offers services. I donate as often as I can and I encourage others to do so. Also, volunteer if you can. Candice

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've witness the turnaround in youth when they are supported with structured programs that promote learning, gives recognition, improves their outlook on life and future, and fosters a since of pride in them. Most children will to the occassion whenthey know that someone genuinely cares about them and the folk at WJCC COmmunity Action do just that.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would increase their funding, hire more people because too few are doing multiple jobs, donate them some land so they can build a nice facility for their Head Start preschool program and offices. I would also increase salaries. The employees work for little and yet they produce so much.
