About us

Action pact, formerly Concerted Services, Inc.,  is a community action agency deeply rooted in the promise of improving lives and communities.

For over 50 years, we have worked alongside local partners and have become integral to the progress of the individuals and families in the communities we serve.

Our pact

We draw strength from our past and focus our energy on an even stronger future. With action pact’s help, our communities will be full of neighbors who can support their families, boost their education, and have a meaningful impact.

Leadership

Our mission is big.

We strive to create equal opportunity by prioritizing progress over programs.

To succeed, our staff of nearly 400 have to work as one team moving toward a common goal. This requires strong, diverse, and passionate leaders.

Meet our team.
