IMPACT Community Action

IMPACT Community Action is one of 48 Community Action Agencies in Ohio and more than 1,000 nationally that is on the front line in the War on Poverty. Our mission is "to reduce poverty by providing hope-inspiring help and real opportunities for self-sufficiency."

Each year, IMPACT serves more than 20,000 families in Columbus and Franklin County who are at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Through a variety of programs and services, we work to move families from crisis to stability, from stability to empowerment, and from empowerment to self-sufficiency.

IMPACT's call to action is the "ripple effect" -- the repercussions of an event or situation experienced far beyond its immediate location. Moreover, IMPACT's brand identity was inspired by the following quote from Senator Robert F. Kennedy...

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
