In its 18th year, VICINITY is a cherished event attended by over 400 prominent citizens and engaged corporate partners who gather to support TCAA’s mission of eliminating poverty and advancing equitable communities.


Tempe Community Action Agency (TCAA) was established in 1966 by two dedicated Tempe women who sought to address the causes and effects of poverty in families and neighborhoods. TCAA still endeavors to be the voice and catalyst of empowerment and opportunity. Today, TCAA goes beyond the Tempe borders, serving Scottsdale, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, and Fountain Hills focusing on Food Security, Housing Stability, Economic Mobility and Health and Well-Being.
