    Overview of Delta Community Action Foundation, Incorporated

    Organizational Overview

    Delta Community Action Foundation, Incorporated is a private, non-profit corporation organized

    for the purpose of executing, coordinating, and planning programs authorized by federal, state

    and local entities to alleviate and attempt to eradicate poverty in the Garvin, McClain and

    Stephens counties in Oklahoma.

    In 1965 a group of citizens interested in social problems began county-wide meetings in McClain

    County. On April 4, 1966 the McClain County Community Action Foundation was incorporated

    and funded through the Office of Economic Opportunity. That first year there were two

    employees, Stan McGehee and Bea Reynolds. Delta Head Start was funded as a summer project

    with a budget of $17,902 in 1967. Employees were paid $1.50 an hour. In 1968, Stephens

    County was added to the foundation’s service area, becoming the Delta Community Action

    Foundation with Morris Goodrich as Executive Director. In 1970, Head Start’s budget had

    grown to $159,095. In 1971, Jessie Rae Stone joined the Delta program, and currently serves as

    Fiscal Officer. Karen Nichols, current Executive Director, was hired in 1976 as an outreach

    worker. Garvin County was added as a service area in 1978. Karen Nichols replaced Jake Civis

    as Executive Director in 1992.

    Delta opened its new administrative offices in Lindsay, OK on November 4, 2005, where they

    remain today. The Community Action Foundation administers programs through a county office

    located in all three counties served.

    The core funding of Delta Community Action has been received from the Office of Economic

    Opportunities (1964-1974), Community Services Administration (1974-1981), and the

    Community Services Block Grant (1981 to present).

    Delta Community Action Foundation operates many programs in areas such as early childhood

    education, housing, employment, nutrition, senior citizens, emergency assistance, asset

    development, and transit. Delta Community Action Foundation has 171 full-time employees and

    21 part-time employees. Its total federal funding $4,610,056 with state appropriated funds of

    $1,148,180 and funds from other sources of $491,957, equaling total revenue of $6,250,183 for

    2013.

    An eighteen (18) member Board of Directors governs Delta Community Action Foundation. The

    Board is composed of six (6) members from the low-income sector, six (6) members from the

    private sector, and six (6) members from the public sector.
