West Central Missouri Community Action Agency
Helping People, Changing Lives


West Central Missouri Community Action Agency

We’re dedicated to empowering people to make positive change by coordinating and administering resources. We strive to be the voice in our communities and in our governments for those most in need.

Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live.

We care about the entire community and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

We here at West Central mourn the passing of Charles Braithwait and express our sympathies to the Braithwait family.  Mr. Braithwait helped lead and inspire generations of individuals and organizations committed to the idea and ideals of Community Action in Missouri and across the nation.                    

 His legacy of serving and empowering individuals, families and communities in the War on Poverty will never be forgotten.
