County of Riverside Community Action is a member of a national network of over 1,100 Community Action Agencies across the United States. Community Action was established under the presidency of Lyndon Baines Johnson in 1964 as a part of the "War on Poverty." 


Community Action relies on partners, volunteers and in-kind services to leverage federal and state funding. Our staff and volunteers serve the vast county, which runs 250 miles from Orange County to the Arizona border.
