Introduction
The Community Action Program Corporation is a non-profit community based organization that serves both Washington and Morgan County, Ohio. The current Executive Director of Washington-Morgan Community Action is David Brightbill.


It is the product of over 40 years of caring. In the 1960s, community leaders began meeting to assess local needs and determine a way to meet them. The Community Action Program of Washington-Morgan Counties was incorporated in 1967 and Anthony Mele, founding executive director, obtained funding for a family service center and outreach program, the first family planning program in the state of Ohio, and a full-year Head Start program. With these funds, Washington-Morgan Community Action began its long-standing commitment to the underserved individuals and families living in both counties.

Our world has changed since 1967. Washington-Morgan Community Action has been responding to changing conditions by adding services to meet the expectations of the community. Today, Washington-Morgan Community Action provides an array of over 50 quality services from healthcare to delivery of meals throughout both Washington and Morgan Counties.

Washington-Morgan Community Action has grown from modest beginnings to a major employer and service provider. The organization is truly dedicated to helping people help themselves.
