2017 SSA Ceremony

2017 CAAP Self-Sufficiency Awards Ceremony

Each year, the Community Action Association of Pennsylvania’s 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. This year, in conjunction with the 2017 Collaborative Conference, the Self-Sufficiency Awards ceremony was held in State College, PA on October 3, 2017.

CAAP honored 22 individuals with the full Self-Sufficiency Award and recognized three Community Action clients who demonstrated excellent progress towards self-sufficiency. During the SSA ceremony, we learned about how these individuals found themselves in financial uncertainty, the role Community Action played during their journey back into the middle class, and their vision for the future.
