Our Programs

Head Start/Early Head Start/Pre-K Program. Community Services Programs: The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)/The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)/Adult Day Health Care Program/Adult Senior Nutrition Program/Financial Literacy Program

The Jefferson County Committee for Economic Opportunity (JCCEO) is one of over 1000 Community Action Agencies nationwide, all created by the Economic Opportunity Act (EOA), which Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law on August 20, 1964, to wage a national "War on Poverty." The goal of the act was to encourage communities to organize and use available resources to help improve the conditions in which people live, learn, and work.

On January 21, 1965, the Birmingham Area Committee for Development of Economic Opportunity was incorporated to carry out the activities of a nonprofit organization pursuant to the 1964 EOA. In June 1965, the City of Birmingham and Jefferson County made an agreement to appoint directors to a countywide board of directors for a Community Action Program. On December 5, 1965, the Jefferson County Committee for Economic Opportunity opened its doors to provide a wide range of services to low-income residents of Jefferson County.

"We Deliver More than Promises" continues to be more than a slogan at JCCEO; it is a way of life. JCCEO has served as a channel through which several hundred million dollars have flowed to provide vital services for those with low incomes. It also has provided a significant economic boost to Jefferson County, Alabama. JCCEO is a special place in our community where people find the means to cope with the gaps in their lives and to better themselves in ways that often last a lifetime.
