Community Action Angels

Community Action Angels

Community Action Angels Program is an innovative volunteer program founded by Pat Standish at Wyoming County Community Action.  Pat recognized the unmet needs of individuals who are not eligible for other services.  There are now twenty-two active Community Action Angel Programs at Community Action Agencies in New York State.  The foundation of the program is the spirit of generosity.  The Community Action Angels believe that all people in need deserve to be helped and in return should be given the opportunity to help others…creating a Circle of Giving.

Assistance is provided based solely on individual need, circumstance and the program’s ability to help at the time of the request.  The Angels value partnerships and collaborations with public, private, civic, corporate and faith-based organizations so that by working together, a greater impact can be realized for those served.  The Angels also work on community educational projects.

Are you an angel?  Volunteers are needed for many tasks including collection and distribution of goods, making phone calls and more.  Volunteer as little or as much as you’d like –your terms, your time.  The Angels guarantee that when you volunteer your time to help others, you almost always receive more than you give!  You have been given this day; today you can choose to make a difference.
