It is the policy of the EOA Board of Directors to promote self sufficiency and ease the human suffering of the CSRA citizens using the following strategies:

  • Acting as a catalyst within the low-income community to identify poverty-related and human rights problems and to identify resources and develop services to address those problems;
  • Promoting the attitude of self-help in the low-income community;
  • Providing community education to the low income population, raising their awareness of their rights as citizens, and focusing their attention on causes of poverty and human rights problems; and
  • Working with the community, rather than for the community, to promote self-sufficiency and leadership among the poor.

In our 13-county service area (Burke, Columbia, Emanuel, Glascock, Jefferson, Jenkins, Lincoln, McDuffie, Richmond, Screven, Taliaferro, Warren & Wilkes Counties in Georgia), 71,583 people were living in poverty (17.5% of population) as measured by the 2000 United States Census. The effect
s and consequences of impoverishment can be devastating for a family, a community, a country. CSRA EOA, Inc. engages in a variety of strategies to assist low-income families and individuals become more self-sufficient.
