Mountain Projects Community Action Agency.
“Mountain Projects Community Action Agency changes people's lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes Haywood and Jackson Counties a better place to live.”
BROAD BASED COMMUNITY REPRESENTATION
Mountain Projects has a Board of Directors with 18 members representing three distinct groups. First, as was envisioned from the outset, representatives of low income target area communities provide an avenue for those most affected by the conditions of poverty to have input into planning programs to address the community's needs. Secondly, representatives from other organizations that provide services to the community comprise the second third of the membership and provide their critical input into developing new, complementary programs to address community needs. Thirdly, elected officials representing Haywood and Jackson Counties including towns and municipalities, constitute the remainder of the Board membership. Their support of the work of Mountain Projects is key to its success.

Mountain Projects is a community based non-profit organization, founded in 1965 as a Community Action Agency, that provides vital services to the elderly, disadvantaged and general public in Western North Carolina. It was begun as part of the "War On Poverty" with a $52,000 Office of Economic Opportunity grant and a pilot summer Head Start program. Since then the agency has grown to an annual budget of nine million dollars, a staff of 140, and provides a broad diversity of services to the community in response to its changing needs.
