Our Mission: To promote and support the well-being and self-reliance of individuals, families, and communities.

Community Action was established fifty years ago by Congress as a centerpiece of the War on Poverty. The goal of Community Action is to reduce poverty, revitalize low-income communities and empower low-income individuals and families to become fully self-sufficient.


New River Community Action (NRCA) has been a well-known proponent of self-sufficiency in the New River Valley of Virginia since 1965. Our mission is to promote and support the well-being and self-reliance of individuals, families and communities.
