This year marks 50 years since the founding of Community Action and of Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA). Founded in 1964 as a part of President Lyndon B. Johnson's War on Poverty, OLHSA provides dozens of services to assist families and individuals to succeed.
OLHSA is the largest private nonprofit agency delivering human services to Oakland and Livingston Counties. We welcome those in need with a comprehensive set of services, focusing on meeting the basic needs of senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and people suffering from economic hardship. Our broad range of connected services empowered more than 13,000 clients last year to reach or maintain self-sufficiency. Our services address specific needs in Oakland and Livingston County communities.
OLHSA staff members strive for excellence, respect others and honor diversity. To accomplish its work, OLHSA partners with other local organizations and belongs to a network of more than 1,000 nonprofit Community Action Agencies doing similar work throughout the country.
