The mission of EOPA (Economic Opportunity Planning Association of Greater Toledo, Inc.)
To establish and assume the role of an advocate for the community in order to strengthen the community’s capabilities to bring about significant changes in the bureaucratic structure with maximum feasible participation of the poor and low-income.
EOPA is the designated Community
Action Agency for Lucas County. Founded in 1964, EOPA has been
addressing the broad objective of self-sufficiency for low to moderate
income people; to create programs that empower, mentor, and provide
supportive services. EOPA has historically adopted programs in
order to assist in achieving self-sufficiency. EOPA has always
envisioned that economic emancipation is the greatest path to eradicate
poverty. The programs that we provide have given EOPA a one-stop
atmosphere in serving our customers. Our current priorities are to
strengthen the programs that truly embrace the original mission of
Community Action Agencies, which is to alleviate poverty.
EOPA has long established partnerships in Lucas County with the belief that
partnering provides the community customer's a one-stop delivery system
in which an individual can receive a vast array of information,
services, and referrals.
Each program has its
own income eligibility. For more information, please contact EOPA
and a Program Representative will be more than happy to explain
