Community Action Agency hears testimonials from clients
The Salisbury-Rowan Community Action Agency recently held a luncheon for sponsors and contributors, highlighted by testimonials from some of the people the organization serves.
Among those who spoke were John Morrison, who talked about how he’d learned to become a better father to his daughter through Head Start; Workforce Investment Act students Kristina Stout, Kellie Shehan and James Robinson, who praised the out-of-school program taught by Cylesta Brady; Christopher Sifford, who used a grant to complete his education; Sylvia Robinson and Mary Doss, who spoke about having their homes made energy-efficient and learning how to be better consumers of resources; and Phyllis Suggs, an adult who got her degree through non-traditional means.
Working in Rowan, Cabarrus, Davidson, Moore and Stanly counties, the Community Action Agency provides assistance through early childhood education programs; second-chance opportunities for people seeking GEDs through the Workforce Investment Act; weatherization assistance for homes; and block grant allotments for help with utilities, rent and educational expenses.
