From the Executive Director


I thank our board of directors, staff and community for helping Johnston-Lee-Harnett Community Action, Inc., continue to have a rich history working in the communities we serve.

Our mission stands strong as the day of inception to help eradicate poverty.  I believe empowering our staff and customers has made a positive difference in their lives.  It is the agency’s mission to make our communities, visible, strong and a valuable part of our three county areas.

We are working together to build a strong agency, self-sufficient families and viable communities which changes the face of poverty within society.  Our motto is still relevant today as in the past “helping people change lives.”
