Blue Valley Community Action Partnership (BVCA) was officially incorporated on January 19, 1966 as a private, nonprofit organization. BVCA Partnership focuses on services that can help families and individuals emerge from poverty or a crisis, or prevent them from experiencing these conditions. It works to identify gaps in services needed and then creates solutions to meet those needs. It operates more than 30 programs, each interacting and complementing the others, that support the diverse communities and families throughout its service area.
Butler, Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Polk, Saline, Seward, Thayer and York counties in Nebraska. Limited services are also provided in Adams, Cass, Clay, Douglas, Johnson, Lancaster, Nemaha, Nuckolls, Otoe, Pawnee, Richardson, Sarpy, Saunders and Webster Counties in Nebraska and Pottawattamie County in Iowa.
BVCA Partnership works diligently to develop community programs and activities to eliminate the causes of poverty and improve the condition of poverty within our service area. We do this by being resourceful in utilizing core funding in new ways, as well as call upon local, state and national resources to provide programs and activities that are needed to motivate individuals and create opportunities for self-support.
While some services are consistent across agencies, we pride ourselves on being innovative. The BVCA organization has a history of initiating creative solutions when it comes to areas of need.
