Programs Overview

As York County’s community action agency, Community Progress Council provides comprehensive, integrated services that offer resources and support for individuals and families to move toward self-sufficiency.

We work with low- and moderate-income people of all ages in York County to examine their current situations and determine how our programs best align with their needs.

Our low income assistance programs aim to create a bridge from crisis to self-sufficiency: To empower individuals and low-income families to rise above poverty, identify long-term goals and move themselves toward independence from external assistance.

We are committed to providing equitable services to all. Our facilities are accessible. Our programs provide translators and interpreters when needed to ensure full access to services.
