Decades ago, we began developing the foundations for adults who are now the bedrocks of their communities. Today, we continue, learning, growing, and thriving.

Jefferson Franklin Community Action Corporation (JFCAC) was established in 1965 under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. We are a not-for-profit agency working to improve our communities by creating strong partnerships with those willing to help us address the causes and conditions of poverty in both Jefferson and Franklin Counties.
JFCAC is a part of a nationwide network of Community Action Agencies committed to continuing the war on poverty through innovative programs adapted to address our communities' specific needs. JFCAC offers a wide variety of programs (listed to the right) designed to empower families and improve the quality of life for those living in the crisis of poverty.
The mission of JFCAC is to empower low-income individuals and families to reach their highest level of success by integrating community resources.
*The Community Action Promise...*
Community Action changes people's lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
