Agency description: Mountain Projects, Inc. is a community based non-profit organization. Community Action agencies help low income people break out of the cycle of poverty, not by providing short term answers or temporary solutions, but by providing realistic programs and needed services to help them become self respecting, self sufficient, and contributing members of their community. This agency offers a job training program, a weatherization program, aid to the homeless through the reach shelter, senior citizen resource information, affordable home ownership program, summer youth employment, nutrition programs, and the Head Start Program for children ages 3-5. Community Action is life for our families, our children, our minority communities, and our low-income communities. Several programs also offer living assistance and personal growth assistance through productive involvement within their community.
