If there was ever an idea that defines what CEO does, that’s the one.

We believe that people have the power to change. We believe that everyone can build the life they want if they have the right tools. And, we believe that ridding our local community of poverty isn’t about handouts – it’s about empowerment.

Our services empower people to develop independence in all life areas. CEO gives people the tools they need to build financial stability and lead healthier, happier lives. Our programs work with individuals, families, and the larger community to improve quality of life by meeting social, emotional, financial, and educational needs.

CEO offers services in five core areas:

CEO’s programs are designed to be stepping stones to long-term success. They focus on education, skill building, and connecting people to resources they need. Our goal is to break the cycle of poverty by targeting poverty at its root causes – removing barriers and supporting change.
