Program Description:

Since 1946, our agency has housed a number of different programs supporting seniors, people with disabilities, youth, and other at-risk populations in Southwest Washington. 

The agency began as the Clark County Council of Community Agencies. In 1951, we expanded and became the Vancouver Council of Social Agencies. In 1957, we again looked at area needs and incorporated with a focus on social planning and fundraising in Clark County. Two years later, a Committee on Aging was formed to look at ways to support our aging population.

In 1990, the agency’s name changed to Human Services Council (HSC) to reflect our mission of helping people. In 2021, our agency again changed its name, this time to Community in Motion, reflecting our agency’s role in providing community transportation services.

Through education, resources and support, we offer real hope to children, seniors and families, by working to create a stronger and more stable community for us all. 

Each year, 14,000 people in Ferry, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Whitman and Stevens Counties turn to Rural Resources for short-term assistance and long-term solutions to help them take control of their lives and their futures.

Rural Resources is not a government agency. We’re a private nonprofit corporation whose goal is to meet the basic social and economic needs of our rural community. Just like any business, we are accountable for how we use our resources. More than 95 cents of every dollar goes directly to put those in need on the road to self sufficiency. And we consistently monitor and evaluate the success of our programs – and our clients – to ensure that our funds are spent wisely and efficiently.

Rural Resources Community Action was founded in 1965 by a group of local citizens concerned about their neighbors in need. We are part of a nationwide network of more than 1,000 Community Action Agencies who are a primary source of direct support for the more than 37 million people who live in poverty in the United States. Rural Resources Community Action has spent the last 54 years helping residents of Northeastern Washington help themselves and each other.
