About Nasson Health Care
York County Community Action Corporation (YCCAC) is a private nonprofit organization. It was founded in 1965 as a result of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. This Act was based on the notion that local communities can more effectively address the needs of citizens than lawmakers in Washington, and sought to “alleviate the paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty.”
YCCAC helps to alleviate poverty in York County by providing a diversity of programs and services. Out of the tumult of the most profound economic recession since the Great Depression, the need for our services has continued to increase in recent years. To respond to this growing need, YCCAC has focused our efforts to developing programs that offer resourceful solutions that will support the long-term stability of a household. With consideration to this, YCCAC’s message has evolved from one of anti-poverty to one of economic opportunity.
It is simply no longer enough to serve as York County’s anti-poverty agency, providing services that address the immediate and basic needs of those living with low-income (e.g. fuel assistance, transportation, health care). While these programs are critically important to the susta...inability of families, they do little to change the direction or mobility of a population that struggles to emerge from the day-to-day existence of barely—and often not quite— making ends meet. At YCCAC, we seek ways to promote meaningful outcomes for our clients. We continue to think strategically about our programs, employing an assets-based framework that recognizes that assets are more than tangible items, but include an individual’s health, educational achievement, and skills. As quoted by the New American Foundation: “Lack of income means you don’t get by. Lack of assets means you don’t get ahead.” YCCAC staff work diligently, knowing that the success of our programs is not measured in how many services are provided, but rather, how greatly these services impact York County households with the overarching goal that, someday, our services will no longer be needed.
