A private, non-profit Community Action Agency established in 1965, the Warren-Forest Counties Economic Opportunities Council (EOC) utilizes available funds to operate over 30 programs and services for low-income individuals and families. We are dedicated to building communities, changing lives, and empowering individuals and families to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency through a comprehensive system of collaborative services and resources. Since its inception, the agency has ventured to move individuals to higher economic positions through services provided while instilling a self-reliant and self-sufficient attitude in each client. Available programs include community based initiatives, Head Start, Pre-K Counts, Weatherization, utility assistance, special need housing, and homelessness prevention.
The EOC is part of a 43-agency network of Community Action Agencies covering the 67 counties in Pennsylvania. Community Action Agencies are the nations largest network of community-based organizations whose principal mission is serving those in need
Current Projects/Needs: In light of current events which raise the question of what are we doing to keep our students safe; the Warren-Forest EOC is requesting the community’s help in raising needed funds to purchase equipment which will help us more securely lock down our classrooms in the event of an emergency. On average, we serve 175 local families and 181 Head Start students each school year. We also serve 20 additional children attending PA PreK Counts. Our Head Start and PA PreK Counts enrollees attend class in 12 different classroom located in 5 center locations throughout Warren County.
Our teachers and staff have attended ALICE training and we are identifying ways to prepare our classrooms if needed. Please join us in this effort!
