ShareCorps -CAC Portage Co- Summer Associate
 
 
 
The mission of the Community Action Council of Portage County is... "To educate, empower, assist and advocate for our community members to achieve their maximum potential and self-sufficiency". In fulfilling its mission, the agency is charged with developing and operating programs and services that would positively impact the economically disadvantaged residents of Portage County. In doing so, the agency strives to develop innovative and dynamic solutions to poverty issues that reflect not only the needs of Portage County, but the needs of its most vulnerable residents. Community Action Council of Portage County operates the Summer Food Service Program and benefits exponentially from the services and skills of Summer VISTAs that are allocated to us. Summer VISTAs help us to address the poverty issue that affects children and food during the summer months. Studies have shown that children who receive adequate nutrition/meals along with educational summer programming and enrichment are more likely to perform better. We intend to improve the academic performance and overall health of the children affected by poverty while reducing the number of children who are unfed during the summer months.
