CEOC was established in April 1965 as Cambridge’s designated community action anti-poverty agency, and it has never strayed from its mission of the prevention and elimination of poverty’s causes and impacts. CEOC is working harder than ever in these stressful economic times, to provide direct individual and family service support and advocacy and to engage our community through organizing initiatives to be empowered in public policy setting.
As CEOC prepares to celebrate its 45th Anniversary, we realize that our programs and public policy advocacy are important now more than ever because of the economic challenges that confront individuals and families. Those with limited and low incomes continue to experience the burden of not being able to make ends meet. Many working individuals and families are not able to afford their basic needs - food, heat, rent or health care even under Massachusetts’ Health Care Reform.

Individuals and families with limited incomes deserve a chance to build economic stability for themselves and their children. Living paycheck to paycheck does not insure economic security for the future. Life’s unanticipated expenses require assets in order to survive the emergencies caused by illness, injury or loss of employment.
