The House of Representatives recently recognized the First State Community Action Agency and its staff, including Executive Director Bernice Edwards (middle), with the passage of a resolution proclaiming May 2015 as Community Action Month in Delaware.

The House commended the agency for all its work in providing "life-changing" services and opportunities such as affordable housing, economic development, health care, energy assistance, and natural disaster relief and recovery. Members approved House Resolution 11, which said, "First State Community Action Agency has been putting a human face on poverty for 50 years by advocating for those who don't have a voice so that they may enter the middle class and reach for the American dream, replacing their despair with opportunity."

First State Community Action Agency has locations in all three counties, with the Sussex office located in Georgetown.
