Our Mission

The Burlington County Community Action Program exists to combat the causes and reduce the effects of poverty in Burlington County. It fulfills the purpose by:

  • Facilitating a community-based capacity for the human needs planning process, which focuses program strategies on promoting self-sufficiency among low-income people.
  • Removing barriers to self-sufficiency among low-income people in the organization and operation of institutions and programs.
  • Maximizing participation of low-income people in the development and implementation of programs and projects and in the decision-making process of institutions affecting their lives.
  • Testing new approaches to solving basic causes of poverty provided that they do not involve BCCAP as a long-term, direct service provider.
  • Supporting self-help groups and other cooperative efforts among low-income people.
  • Working to better organize services related to the needs of the poor.
  • Broadening resource base of programs directed to the elimination of poverty.
  • Providing safe, decent, affordable housing to low- and moderate-income families.
  • Providing housing counseling services.
