Our MISSION is to support families and individuals in improving their quality of life. We VALUE integrity, empowerment, compassion, service to others, and quality.  Community Action is a United Way of Marquette County member agency.

November 13, 2015 News Update:

Deliverable fuel (propane, wood, oil, etc..) heating assistance is now available in Alger and Marquette Counties. Please call our office to schedule an intake appointment (906) 228-6522 or (800) 562-9762.

Michigan State Housing Development Authority’s (MSHDA’s) guidelines for Homeless Services require that we serve those most in need first rather than on a first-come first-served basis. Each household must be assessed and then addressed in priority order. Literally unsheltered families will be served before those who are housed and facing potential homelessness. Income qualifications apply.

All homeless Veterans and their families will be served.

Although our young ones are settling in for school, we’re still accepting applications for Early Childhood Education programs (ages 3-5). Pregnant women or those with young children (0-3) should also contact us about our Great Start Readiness Program. It’s never too early to be thinking about your child’s development.
