A pot luck fiesta, called Opening Doors of Understanding, was held on June 4th at the Dayton Metro Library auditorium.

Funded by a grant received from MetLife Foundation, it was a culmination of a series of programs celebrating Latino families and culture. The event included food, conversation, entertainment, balloons and mural painting.

The Dayton library has been expanding services to Spanish-speaking customers by increasing the number of books in Spanish, offering story times in Spanish and working with groups like the LULAC and East-End Community Center, to spread the word about the library to the community.

The Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency, CAA, held its 6th annual legislative breakfast on June 3, 2005 at the Vernon Manor Hotel.

The annual breakfast gives CAA the opportunity to share its successes and to inform elected officials about its exciting new initiatives. Elected officials, or their representatives, from the federal, state, county and city levels of government were represented.

CAA Board member, Mr. V. Anthony Simms-Howell encouraged our elected officials to support the agency on two major legislative issues:

1) Support the reauthorization of the Community Service Block Grant, CSBG, of $636.6 million for fiscal year 2006. The agency’s CSBG budget is $1.7 million.

2) Support the reauthorization of Head Start at the current funding level and reject any proposal to dismantle and/or reduce its current performance standard requirements.

“We help make things happen” is the vision statement of the CAA; and the agency has been doing just that for 40 years. CAA is the second oldest in the nation serving 25,000 low-income individuals and families each year. Through its Community Services, Head Start, and Weatherization programs the agency has a holistic and integrated approach to help the region low-to moderate-income residents empower themselves and become self-sufficient. This is the core to the mission and key to its success.

Gwen L. Robinson is the President/CEO and Mr. Mark B. Lawson, Esq. is the Board Chair. For further information about the agency and its services, please contact
