As one of the original 23 Community Action Agencies formed in 1964 after President Lyndon Johnson declared a “War on Poverty,” KCEOC Community Action Partnership has been helping others help themselves for over 56 years. This help has come in many forms, from early childhood education, to housing and food assistance, to weatherizing homes, to providing emergency services. The agency has served thousands of area residents in need and is constantly developing new programming to meet those needs, as well as serving as an advocate and voice for those who need a hand up.
With an original service area of one county, KCEOC now provides services in 16 counties in eastern and central Kentucky. We are constantly adapting our service delivery model to accommodate the rapidly changing times we are in and are able to provide services in the direst circumstances.
KCEOC Community Action Partnership is dedicated to recognizing human potential, improving communities, and creating opportunities for change.
