First State Community Action Agency works with individuals and communities to overcome the challenges of unemployment, homelessness,
conditions, and hunger. Our sense of commitment to this goal is as strong today as it was when we started in 1965. For more than 48 years, we have been working hard to make a difference in the lives of the citizens of Delaware.
