North Central WV Community Action Association, Inc. (NCWVCAA) has been a viable voice and supporter of the poor in West Virginia since its incorporation in 1966. NCWVCAA, as a multi-county corporation, was formed by the joining of six single county entities in order to more effectively and efficiently serve the designated population. The original counties were Monongalia, Marion, Preston, Taylor, Barbour and Tucker. NCWVCAA later expanded its service area to include Randolph, Pocahontas , Greenbrier and Webster (Head Start only) counties. The agency operates an office facility in each county. Our staff and volunteers take pride in giving citizens unique opportunities to empower themselves. The staff employed support necessary and progressive corporate efforts and are recognized by their peers and funding entities. The Board of Directors establishes policies and direction for the corporation and it consists of equal representation from each member county. There is also representation from Policy Council of our Head Start program. The Board employs the executive director of the corporation.
