About Us

Great Lakes Community Action Partnership has been serving the northwest Ohio area for more than 50 years. We began in 1965 as WSOS Community Action Commission following the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, which helped create hundreds of community action agencies throughout the United States. Our letters stood for the core counties we served — Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa, and Seneca. Since then, we have progressively expanded the scope of our services, adding other counties, states and even countries to our service area.
