WADI is a private not-for-profit Community Action Agency and is classified as a 501c3 tax exempt charity organization but that doesn't tell our story... Community Action equips low-income citizens with the tools and potential for becoming self-sufficient. The structure is unique – federal dollars are used locally to offer programming that is specifically needed in our local communities. It is a coordinated effort to address the root effects of poverty and to, ultimately, move families and individuals to self-sufficiency.  Poverty is viewed as a systemic problem and Community Action is a systems approach to resolving those issues. There are now over 1000 Community Action Agencies throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.  We are committed to:
