Dear Friends,

Through the unimaginable hardships and untold losses, the pandemic reminded us of one thing: the Cape Ann community rises to help our neighbors in need.

Time and again, we saw neighbors helping neighbors. Whether it was a casserole left on a doorstep, a box of masks, or a ride to thestore, we all did our part.

Although we have come out the other side, that generosity of spirit hasn’t faded on Cape Ann.

At Action Inc. we are right there by your side, helping our neighbors with emergency and affordable housing, utility and rental assistance, and training and education programs.

Together, we are a united community, providing stability and support to our friends and neighbors.

You did your part, we did our part – that’s what makes a stronger community. With your support, we can continue to play our role.

Thank you for working with us toward building an equitable and resilient community.

With Gratitude,

Peggy Hegarty-Steck, CEO Signature
