Observing 51 years of community action service

On August 20, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Economic Opportunity Act which created a variety of programs, including Community Action Agencies, as part of his War on Poverty. He knew then as we know now, that the war against poverty must be won in the field, in every private home, in every public office, from the courthouse to the White House.

“Nobody Left to Ask” became the name of Dottie’s book.

“I realized the family story would end with us, if I didn’t get it written down,” she said.
