Community Action Council of Howard County (CAC) was established in 1965 as Howard County’s designated anti-poverty agency.  It is CAC’s belief that collectively we can support the most vulnerable individuals in our community by paving pathways out of poverty and creating hope for a life that gives us all an equal opportunity to reach our fullest potential.

CAC’s mission is to diminish poverty, enable self-sufficiency, and advocate for low-income families and individuals. CAC gives hope to those struggling in Howard County, serving more than 35,000 individuals each year with food, housing, energy, and weatherization assistance as well as early childhood education programs.
