Washington-Morgan Community Action
Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

On September 21, 2007, Washington-Morgan Community Action celebrated its 40th anniversary. Over 230 employees and special guests enjoyed an evening filled with stories about how the agency began, the present activities of the agency, and where the agency plans to go in the future.

David Bradley, Executive Director of the National Community Action Foundation and one of Washington’s leading advocates for low income programs, praised the work of Washington- Morgan Community Action. Mr. Bradley expressed his thanks to David Brightbill, Executive Director, and all employees for the work that the agency does in the community and their commitment to improving the lives of low income individuals and families.

Washington-Morgan Community Action was incorporated in 1967 under the direction of Anthony Mele. The agency began a top a men’s clothing store owned by Mr. Mele. Gradually the agency grew and became too large for the space and the main office was relocated to the Lock House on Front Street in Marietta. The agency continued to grow and in 1991 the main office of Washington-Morgan Community Action was moved to its current location at 218 Putnam Street.

Guest speaker David Bradley, executive director of the National Community Action Foundation, pays tribute to WMCAP's 40 years of commitment to the communities it serves.
Washington-Morgan Community Action provides over 60 programs in both Washington and Morgan Counties, Ohio. The agency has buildings and service locations throughout the cities, towns and villages in both counties.
