Missouri Valley Community Action Agency (MVCAA) was founded in 1965. Its mission is to engage communities and focus resources to end poverty.
MVCAA is one of 19 Community Action Agencies located in Missouri, and one of over 900 in the United States. The function of every Community Action Agency is to combat poverty in geographically designated areas. Each Agency is unique, because each is designed to address local needs.
MVCAA is a locally controlled, private, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose purpose is to sponsor and operate community action programs designed to help local residents become more self-sufficient. A local Board of Directors oversees MVCAA’s Leadership Team and its staff of 155 to ensure that the organization runs smoothly.
Corporate headquarters are located in Marshall, Missouri. We serve the 20,000 local low and moderate income residents in our seven county service area.
