Each year, the CAAP Self-Sufficiency Awards recognize the significant accomplishments of the award winners while showcasing how Community Action Agencies support an individual's path toward self-sufficiency. Each member agency is urged to nominate at least one client and more than one client can be nominated for both the full Self-Sufficiency Award or for the Progress Towards Self-Sufficiency Award. The Self-Sufficiency Awards ceremony will take place in conjunction with the Collaborative Conference on October 4th, 2018, 6:00PM in State College, PA (https://collaborativeconference.org). There will be a reception at 5:00pm prior to the 6pm ceremony. The ceremony will be located at the Penn Stater Hotel (215 Innovation Blvd, State College, Pennsylvania, 16803).
Self-sufficiency success stories outline how the recipient endured a lack of resources that threatened health, safety, family stability, and perhaps life itself. Stories demonstrate how the individual encountered Community Action and how the agency supported the individual to self-sufficiency. The CAAP Self-Sufficiency Awards are a way to acknowledge recipients for their hard work and provides an outlet to share with the public how Community Action supports our communities. This helps media, policymakers, partnering organizations, and the general public gain a better understanding of Community Action and what low-income citizens can accomplish when given the opportunity and appropriate resources.
