Blount County Community Action Agency
Meals on Wheels (MOW) is more than just a meal. One Monday, we discovered one of our seniors was struggling with day to day bathing. She is wheelchair bound and had no way to get in the tub. One phone call from the MOW office to a local church and our needy senior is set. She is now the proud owner of a transfer chair that allows her to take her own shower for the first time in over a year. Can you imagine?
This small act of caring restored her dignity, increased the quality and independence. After outliving her husband, Joe lost her only child four years ago. Instead of being alone, she is surrounded by a MOW family who would go to the moon and back for her if we could.

Community Action is many things. Since its inception in 1964 as part of President Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty,” it has served millions of Americans with energy assistance, hot meals, job and housing assistance and many other services. In Blount County, community action has been involved in the lives of some the County’s most vulnerable citizens since 1965. Through programs like Low Income Energy Assistance, Community Service Block Grant services, the Office on Aging, Senior Nutrition, Commodities distribution and Weatherization Blount County Community Action Agency (BCCAA) has improved the lives of thousands for over 50 years.
