Annual Report 2020–2021

“I don’t think I could have made it another year like I’d been making it the past 15 years.”

“[TAP] was a tremendous help, and the help has not ceased.”

 “I feel like I am getting my self-confidence back.”

These are the words of TAP clients featured in our most recent annual report. The report details how TAP has opened doors for families and individuals who are working hard to overcome obstacles in their own lives.

At the heart of our work is the goal to help people get out of and stay out of poverty. We offer more than 20 programs in the areas of education, employment, affordable housing, and creating safe and healthy environments for families. The annual report provides a glimpse into these programs and the life-changing results they help people in our community achieve.  

In a typical year, we serve around 5,000 people. Last year was different. Throughout the most uncertain days of the pandemic we kept our doors open, determined to continue serving the most vulnerable among us. When the year was over, we had served close to 9,000 people.

Please enjoy the inspiring stories of a few of the individuals we served among the thousands. Jane bravely sought support in the face of abuse. Kenneth received life-changing help for his dilapidated home. Ann found inner strength to complete her education.

While we celebrate their stories, we are also mindful that their victories didn’t happen in a vacuum. It takes all of us working together to support the work of community action. Thank you for your support.
