  • About Us
    Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council was created in 1965 as part of America’s War on Poverty. We are a private not-for-profit corporation serving the residents of Chelan and Douglas Counties. We assist individuals and families to move out of poverty into a lifestyle that promotes a safer and healthier living environment, leading to self-sufficiency. Community Action Council works with other social service agencies, public agencies, community organizations, businesses, and churches to coordinate services.

    Our goal is to make the entire community more responsive to the needs and interests of the low-income population by mobilizing resources and bringing about greater institutional sensitivity.

    Our programs include Energy Assistance, Weatherization, AmeriCorps, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, the Literacy Council, an asset-building program that offers tax preparation and financial education training, and the Food Distribution Center that delivers food to twelve area food banks in Chelan & Douglas counties. We also own and operate 50 units of affordable housing and manage the Wenatchee Community Center.
  • Our Impact
    Our programs impact the members of our community on a daily basis. Many success stories can be found on our website.
