CAFI Community Outreach AmeriCorps VISTA
 
 
 
CAFI Agency Capacity Building VISTA Program supports effective initiatives that help CAFI address poverty and access to the resources within this services area. Also, VISTAs will complement our efforts to alleviate poverty by engaging volunteers and community members and greatly expanding fundraising capacity. Community Action for Improvement, Inc. (CAFI) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1966 and headquartered in LaGrange, Georgia. The agency has provided services to low-income families or individuals experiencing homelessness or who are at-risk of homelessness for over 50 years, serving a five-county service area in Georgia. Counties served are Carroll, Coweta, Heard, Meriwether, and Troup. CAFI's mission, adopted in 1976, is to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families by providing services and resources that will facilitate the building of self-esteem and self-sufficiency through the active involvement of the total community. Since 1966, CAFI has provided service connection, Weatherization, Low-Income Energy Assistance Program, and Homelessness Prevention and Housing Stability Program to Georgia residents seeking a hand-up, not a hand-out. CAFI has strategically provided services in community education, advocacy, and direct services to more than one million individuals. The agency has strived to offer programs and services that empower the community and citizens within its five-county service area to become self-sufficient and emerge from economic despair.
