Locust Street Flats is proud to welcome Community Action Partnership of Lancaster and Saunders Counties in Suite 200! As you drive by The Flats, you will notice new signage in the window of our co-working space.
Community Action Partnership of Lancaster and Saunders Counties is a non-profit, poverty-fighting, community-based organization that has been serving residents of Lancaster and Saunders Counties in Southeastern Nebraska since 1965. Community Action supports participants in creating opportunities for success in four impact areas: Early Childhood Education; Homelessness Prevention; Financial and Family Well-Being; and Hunger Relief and Healthy Food Access.
Across Saunders County and non-Lincoln communities in Lancaster County, there are over 2,500 individuals living below the federal poverty level, which equates to $26,500 per year or about $500 per week for a family of four. For individuals living with low income especially, one unexpected life event can threaten stability. Community Action staff will occupy Suite 200, working to increase access to emergency rent, utility, and deposit payment assistance for those living in Hickman and other smaller communities within its two-county service area.
Community Action empowers people living in poverty to reach economic stability. Community Action cares about the entire community and is dedicated to providing opportunities for success for those living in poverty. Welcome to the Locust Street Flats family!
