About Us

Lima Allen Council on Community Affairs (LACCA) was founded in 1993 to serve our community in meeting the needs of both young and old in Allen County. After nearly three years of effort by the United Way of Greater Lima, the Black Ministerial Alliance, the City of Lima’s Mayor, and Allen County Commissioners. LACCA was designated as the community action agency for Allen County, Ohio, on February 1, 1994.

Upon opening, LACCA operated two emergency assistance programs, the local Federal Emergency Management Assistance and the Home Energy Assistance Program, with four employees and a budget of $345,000.00. On September 12, 1994, a Micro Enterprise Coordinator was hired and the Allen/Lima Enterprise Assistance Program became the first program created by the new Community Action Agency. In 1995 Head Start became the biggest funded program in the agency serving 422 children.

"Over 14 million Americans are unemployed. Now imagine you are one of them. Your savings is gone. You've lost your house. You're a single parent. And you're down to your last $1,000. Can you make it through the month?"

The simulation at http://www.playspent.org puts you in the same situation many of our clients are in. Can you make it through the month?
