It is with deep sorrow and pain to announce the death of our Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Charles W. Grant, who passed on to eternity April 3, 2014. He will be greatly missed. Please pray for his family and the Clayton County Community Service Authority, Inc.

Rev. Grant devoted almost 50 years of his life to ensuring that the less privileged had a decent life. He made sure that people were treated with respect and dignity regardless of color and ethnicity.  He was one of the pioneers of Community Action that worked tirelessly to eradicate poverty in Clayton County and beyond.  He always said, his mission and goal was “Helping People to Help Themselves.”

May his soul Rest in Peace.

----- COMMUNITY ACTION -----

President Lyndon B. Johnson brought up the concept of a “War
on Poverty” in his first State of the Union address on January 8, 1964.

The Johnson Administration sent a draft of the Economic Opportunity Act to Congress on March 16, 1964. President Johnson said:“because it is right, because it is wise, and because, for the first time in our history, it is possible to conquer poverty, I submit, for the consideration of the Congress and the country, the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964.”

On August 20, 1964 in Washington, DC President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Economic Opportunity Action creating a variety of programs—including Community Action Agencies—as part of his War on Poverty.
