Mission Statement

The Frederick Community Action Agency, the federally designated Community Action Agency for Frederick County, Maryland, administers programs and services to assist disadvantaged and low-income people, thereby, ameliorating the causes and effects of poverty.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. - President Franklin Delano Roosevelt
