Breaking The Cycle of Poverty and Changing Lives in El Paso County since 1964


Pikes Peak Community Action Agency (PPCAA) originated with the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 as one of the "war on poverty" programs.  In 1984 the organization re-incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.  Since 1964, PPCAA has served the Pikes Peak Region, providing assistance to hundreds of thousands of individuals and families in a continuing effort to build a stronger community by stabilizing families in crisis and promoting true self-sufficiency through unique and innovative programs.
