A Message from the Executive Director
Dear Supporters of Johnston-Lee-Harnett Community Action, Incorporated, Johnston-Lee-Harnett Community Action is proud to be approaching our Fiftieth (50) Year of Service to the Community. We began as Johnston County Community Action and added two additional counties (Lee and Harnett). We have expanded our services to assist infants to the elderly.
Our Agency Strategic Plan addresses the many needs of the community which includes HeadStart/Early Head Start; Community Service Block Grant Program; Weatherization/HARRP; HUDHousing Counseling; Duke Energy Helping Homes Fund; Rapid Re-housing Homeless Program and an Economic Development Program. Despite economic shifting and uncertain times, we have remained committed and true to our mission of providing resources to help improve thelives of many citizens in our three county area. Our slogan, "Helping People, Changing Lives"! is our workplace culture. It's how we have done business since 1966.
Our website gives the community a snap-shot of the many lives our agency touches. Information included on the website will give the community and recipients an easier access to the many programs we administer. It is the agency's goal to promote self-sufficiency for all ourcustomers.
Johnston-Lee-Harnett Community Action, Inc. built its new Smithfield Headquarters in 2012. We have a Facebook page and Twitter subscription. We invite you to become our friend on Facebook and follow our tweets; tell your friends, family and colleagues too. We believe that the more people with whom we share our story, the more our support will grow.
A very special thanks to our Board of Directors, Policy Councils, staff, and our donors for their unwavering support as we have administered the Agency's services. We are extremely pleased and grateful to have had the opportunity of serving the communities of Johnston, Lee, and Harnett Counties. We look forward to greater things to come as we "help people, change lives".
E. Marie Watson - Executive Director
