About Our Organization
Blue Valley Community Action Partnership (BVCA) is a private, non-profit organization that operates over 30 programs that interact and complement each other. Our programs are as diverse as the communities and families we serve.
Our Children Services Department administers Head Start, Early Head Start, Childcare Partnership Program and Infant Toddler Quality Initiative throughout much of our service area, including Gage County!
Imagine a snowball sitting at the top of a hill, and that the snowball represents a money-related problem in a person’s life.
It’s a small snowball so it’s a relatively small problem: maybe it’s not having enough money for gas to get to and from work, or needing to replace a pair of steel-toed boots, or being a little short on an especially high utility bill. Sometimes, though, even a small amount of money is too much for a low-to-moderate income (LMI) person or family.
The problem doesn’t get solved, so the snowball starts to roll downhill. Very quickly it gets bigger, and as it rolls the problem becomes more difficult and expensive to solve. Perhaps the client misses shifts at work or even loses their job. Their power might be turned off, or they may face eviction.
What if the problem could have been solved back when it was just a small snowball sitting at the top of a hill? What if it could have been taken care of without the additional expense and emotional trauma inflicted on a person or family?
Blue Valley Community Action Partnership has set a fundraising goal of $5,000 to help the LMI population in Gage County meet those unexpected expenses that, while relatively small, can still seem insurmountable. We don’t have grant money to do this, so we are seeking private donations from the generous people of the community.
