Western South Dakota Community Action Agency (WSDCAA)


Historically, the Agency has undertaken anti-poverty programs and projects designed either at the national level, to meet needs that are widespread throughout the country, or designed within the Agency itself, in partnership with the low-income community, to meet needs unique to the local population. Many successful efforts, including Operation Mainstream, a job training program, Head Start, a detox program, and Legal Aid, were spun off. Today WSDCAA provides services through the Department of Energy’s Weatherization Program and a host of programs and projects that address the needs that have been identified by the low-income population in the service area.
