For more than four decades, Action for a Better Community (ABC) has been a leader in encouraging, supporting, and developing self-sufficiency among low-income families in Monroe County. Our efforts have been extended to include Ontario County as well.
As a “community action agency,” ABC’s programs touch upon the health, education, safety, employment, and housing of our region’s families, individuals, teens, and toddlers. Since its beginning, ABC has aided thousands of individuals and families to move from public assistance and/or the ranks of the working poor to a gainfully employed, tax-paying status.
In the coming years, it is envisioned that ABC’s programs will play an even more critical role in the community’s response to poverty and welfare reform. Accordingly, ABC’s three divisions, Head Start, Employment & Economic Development, and Community Services, are focused on fortifying our historical commitment to customer-directed quality service.
