Springfield Partners for Community Action

Springfield Partners for Community Action
Springfield Partners for Community Action is the federally designated Community Action Agency (CAA) for the greater Springfield area, serving low-income individuals and families. Established in 1964 under the Economic Opportunity Act, Springfield Partners is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, SOMWBA-certified enterprise. The agency has over 50 years of experience providing services and advocacy to alleviate the conditions of poverty for area residents.

Springfield Partners is a lifeline for the low-income residents of Springfield and Hampton County we help every year. Nearly 29% of the people living in Springfield live below the poverty line. We help these families break the cycle of poverty.

We assist up to 7,000 individuals in our community every year with our programs, and we strive to provide even more.

Springfield Partners Recognized Eleven Scholarship Winners at an Award Breakfast

Springfield Partners Recognized  Eleven Scholarship Winners at an Award Breakfast
Springfield Partners for Community Action honored 11 scholarship winners with $1000 each, at an awards breakfast on Thursday, June 25, at Springfield Technical Community College.

“The scholarship program is designed to help high school seniors and adult learners meet their educational goals. Our scholarship program is a unique in the fact that one of the criteria of the scholarship is a commitment to the community through volunteering. We don’t simply look at student’s GPAs but we look at their goals and what they have done to help others. We do this because we believe in our mission to partner with people and the community.” – Paul Bailey, Executive Director - Springfield Partners.

"...we have to box clever in the margins, and make the most of what we have."

Sadly, Springfield is in a deep pocket of poverty— through a low-income base and high unemployment, which keeps communities in a long-term economically vulnerable position. This cycle of poverty impacts the ability of a person to function in society, and has a domino effect on issues such as homelessness and malnutrition.
