Community Action Center of Northfield (CAC)

Fulfilling our neighbors' basic needs



At the Community Action Center (CAC) of Northfield, we are “neighbors helping neighbors.” Our programs – from Creating Homes to Feeding the Hungry – meet the most basic needs of individuals and families who are seeking help.

As a nonprofit organization serving the life-sustaining needs of those in our area, many people rely on the CAC for support as they seek independence.
