WAGAP is a multipurpose human service organization dedicated to helping individuals, families, and communities address basic human needs.
Each year, thousands of people turn to WAGAP for short-term assistance and long-term solutions to help them take control of their lives and their futures.
Programs offering Nutrition Assistance, Emergency Housing, Domestic Violence Prevention, Care Coordination, Home Energy Assistance and much more assure that WAGAP is meeting the promise of Community Action.
Strengthening community by inspiring hope and helping people help themselves.
However, I don’t have to look far for proof: I see it in the faces of my staff who come to work with new determination each day, in the face of the single mother who has renewed hope after receiving a gas voucher to get to work, in the face of the elderly gentleman who just got word that he qualified for Energy Assistance and doesn’t have to worry about his electricity getting shut off in the cold winter months, in the face of the kid at the Youth Center who got to eat a warm dinner with friends.
These faces keep me going and remind me why we do the work that we do. We are making a difference.”
