The operative word for the WACOG Community Services is community. Perhaps more than any other arm of WACOG, it is this function – with its plethora of services and programs – that wears the most human – and humane – of faces. Male, female, infant, adult, senior… anyone who needs assistance and who falls under the eligibility and residency guidelines can receive help from WACOG’s Community Services.
Leading the way to reduce the ramifications of poverty, Community Services and specifically WACOG as the Region IV (La Paz, Mohave, and Yuma Counties) Community Action Program (CAP) was established to mobilize resources to help families fight the consequences and move out of poverty.
CAP programs and services also assist local residents in identifying and resolving the problems that led to a poverty situation. The staff additionally provides referral information about other services agencies in the community.
