The mission of amcab is to support families and individuals in improving their quality of life. You will find a variety of services listed down the right hand side of this page. What is amcab? What do we do?
amcab is a local Community Action Agency serving residents of Alger and Marquette Counties in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
Incorporated as an IRS Private, Non-Profit Corporation 501(c)3 in 1965, amcab is one of 30 Community Action Agencies (CAA’s) that serve the 80 counties in Michigan.
CAA’s were formed as “umbrella” organizations to house a variety of human service programs under one administrative roof. This umbrella concept was formulated to keep administrative costs down thereby freeing up more funds to directly help those in need.
The CAA network in Michigan provides the largest network of human services outside of State government.
Our organization provides a wide array of human services that are funded by federal, state and local governments. Our services are also supported by private and corporate contributions to help expand our services and meet new community needs.
Eligibility for our programs varies from age to income. Please don’t assume you are either eligible, or not eligible, for any specific program. By simply giving us a call, we can begin the first steps to determine what programs we have that may help you.
amcab takes action to help people become self-sufficient and to help our communities grow stronger. We do this in partnership with those we serve. By extending a helping hand, together, we continue to improve the quality of life of individuals.
Our annual Bread n Putter Golf Outing is coming up on August 7, 2014 at the Marquette Golf Club. In the past this event helped raise over $15,000 that went to the provision of more meals to our local senior citizens.
If your would like to learn more about how to help feed more seniors, please contact our Nutrition Program at 906.228.6522 ext. 301
