Community Action Network
Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA
MissionCommunity Action Network partners with children, youth, and families from under-resourced Washtenaw County neighborhoods to create better futures for themselves and improve the communities in which they live.
What We DoCAN operates programs at multiple community centers throughout Washtenaw County focused on education for children and youth, stabilization, and community building.
Education: CAN partners with the community to operate after-school and summer programs so children and youth striving to overcome financial and environmental barriers can achieve their highest academic potential and become successful, self-support, well-adjusted adults.
Stabilization: CAN helps families meet their basic needs through operating regular food distributions, emergency pantries, providing free meals during educational programs, and resource referrals so they can create brighter futures for themselves.
Community Building: CAN partners with community members to create and maintain clean, safe, and nurturing communities where families thrive.
