Fostering Dignity and Self-Reliance

What We Do

Since 1966 Tempe Community Action Agency (TCAA) has dedicated its resources to strengthening families and neighborhoods through initiatives that address the causes and effects of poverty. Our mission is to foster dignity and self-reliance in the economically vulnerable within the communities we serve. This  mission is accomplished through the delivery of programs that seek to intervene in homelessness and stabilize housing, promote health upbringings for infants and toddlers, address food insecurity, promote aging in place, and further an individual or family's economic status. On an annual basis TCAA programs benefit more than 27,000 seniors, adults, and children who live within or near the City of Tempe. This volume is possible through the efforts of TCAA's outstanding staff and the generosity of our long-time supporters and volunteers. 

Our work is far from finished. We invite you to join the TCAA team in strengthening people, families, neighborhoods and community. Learn how you can get involved or explore our programs:
