About Community
progress council

Community Progress Council works with low- and moderate-income people of all ages in York County to empower them to achieve self-sufficiency and live independent of public supports. We do this by serving the whole family through comprehensive, integrated services.

Resource Navigators serve as a central point of intake to complete a crisis assessment and connect people to supportive services, coaching, and other referrals. No matter your need, our Resource Navigators are the friendly faces you’ll work with first.

Progress toward self-sufficiency requires comprehensive services. Our programs provide stability and structure to empower people to identify long-term goals and support them on their journey to self-sufficiency.


Community Progress Council opened its doors as York County’s community action agency on April 8, 1965. It is now one of approximately 1,000 community action agencies across the United States that were established in the 1960s when President Lyndon B. Johnson’s declared a war on poverty.

Although each organization is different, community action agencies broadly empower individuals and families to rise above poverty and become self-sufficient. Through dedicated relationships, resources, and skill-building programs, Community Progress Council empowers individuals to become productive, involved citizens.

We are proud to be members of the Community Action Association of Pennsylvania and the Community Action Partnership. We are a United Way of York County Partner Agency.
