Welcome to Tri County Community Action

Tri County Community Action, part of America's Poverty Fighting Network, has been helping people and changing lives across Cumberland, Dauphin, and Perry Counties since 1966.
Last year alone we:

  • Assisted over 13,000 families across the tri county area.
  • Provided over 6,500 referrals for emergency assistance.
  • Kept 26 at-risk youth out of the juvenile justice system.
  • Hosted poverty simulations across the region; raising awareness of the causes, crossroads, and challenges faced by those living in poverty.
  • Picked up more than 80 tons of trash from the city of Harrisburg through our partnership with Clean and Green's Great Harrisburg Cleanup.
