From the Executive Director

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the Community Action Center of Northfield! As a nonprofit organization serving the life-sustaining needs of those in our area, many people rely on the Community Action Center to support them in their journeys to independence. We are fortunate to have a wonderful network of support that allows the Community Action Center to thrive. If you’re interested, we offer a number of opportunities to contribute to — and get involved in — an organization that truly makes a difference in the lives of so many. Whether it’s making a monetary contribution to support the programs of the Community Action Center, donating gently-used clothing to the Clothes Closet or volunteering at the Food Shelf or Northfield Works, every one of the programs we operate directly benefits our neighbors who most need our support. Together, as a community, we ensure that everyone living in the Northfield area is afforded the most basic life necessities. Together, we ensure a better tomorrow by promoting a healthy, caring and just community for all. Warm regards, Jim Blaha Executive Director
