“Community Action Angels is an innovative volunteer coordination program at ACCORD Corporation, administered almost entirely by volunteers devoted to providing hope to people experiencing difficult circumstances.
Community Action Angels serves as a link between volunteers and the community in an effort to enhance existing and future programs. The program is managed by an Advisory Committee that is comprised of volunteers representing all areas of Allegany County.
While there are many services available to those in need, there are many more people needing assistance that do not fit within established program guidelines and eligibility criteria. Community Action Angels seeks to meet all needs, regardless of individual circumstances.”
