Our Approach to Ending Poverty

The Metropolitan Action Commission partners with families in poverty using a Whole Family/2Gen Approach. This approach meets the needs of both the child and the adult in their lives building a system of care around the entire family. Our programs and services break the cycle of poverty by addressing the root causes by increasing family economic security, educational success, and health and well-being from one generation to the next.

Our Promise is Our Mission

Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes Nashville and Davidson County a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

Our Vision

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in our community-One child, one person, one family at a time
