History

The History of the Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska

Mid is a community action, non-profit agency. We were established in 1965 as a part of Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty” which worked to develop positive solutions to poverty. Community Action works to alleviate poverty conditions and enhance economic, education, health, housing, nutrition, and transportation resources.  Throughout our history, the agency has established solid programs that benefit the entire community. Head Start, WIC, Weatherization, Commodity Supplemental Food Program, transportation, immunization clinics, Food Bank, case management, affordable housing, and senior centers are the major programs that we operate. Ninety-five percent of total revenues from Mid-Nebraska are applied to direct program services.
