Community Council began in 1939 to coordinate all community services such as welfare, health, education and civic clubs. Community Council is made up of Alamance County volunteers and professionals in the nonprofit sector, social services, recreation, education, health, government, business, and representatives of civic and church organizations.
Community Council works to:
- Promote cooperation and community planning
- Serve as information center
- Review community needs and resources
- Develop public awareness of community problems and possible solutions
- Initiate new services
- Stimulate continuous improvement
We believe our community is stronger when everyone works together. Community Council unites various sectors to address critical needs, promote volunteerism, and connect resources. Our mission is to be a catalyst for active change that collectively creates a stronger, healthier, and compassionate community. We value diversity and promote inclusive respect among partners and members. Community Council strives to reflect the many cultures, races, backgrounds, and lifestyles that proudly make up Alamance County.
Community Council meets the first Tuesday of each month September – May and the first Wednesday of June at noon. The cost for lunch is typically $10.00. Advance registration is required. Upcoming meeting details are posted on the Community Council announcement blog. To become a member or to learn more, please view the links below. You may also contact the United Way office.
