Audubon Area Community Services, Inc.
Audubon Area Community Services is the largest of twenty-three community action agencies serving residents of Kentucky. Headquartered in Owensboro, Kentucky, Audubon Area is a 1975 consolidation of two agencies – one based in Henderson, the other in Owensboro – both founded in 1966.
AACS currently offers a broad continuum of human services targeting a 42‐county service area in the Barren River, Green River, Pennyrile, Purchase and Lincoln Trail regions. The primary priorities of AACS are to seek out, identify, and work toward mitigating the causes of poverty within the targeted regions; to make the community more responsive to the needs and interests of low-income and homeless individuals and families; to mobilize and maximize available resources; and to develop partnerships and systems that facilitate effective and efficient use of resources for improved economic and social outcomes for citizens.
AACS has successfully established numerous programs in partnership with like-minded institutions to provide seamless, comprehensive, and integrated services that move individuals and families out of the cycle of poverty and homelessness and into greater self-sufficiency. Its current programs include substance abuse recovery, Affordable Care Act enrollment, family preservation and reunification, early childhood development, child-care assistance, senior services, emergency food/shelter, affordable housing, weatherization, financial assistance for heating and energy costs, transportation, education supports, financial literacy, employment supports, work readiness, welfare-to-work, refugee services, and a vast array of case management delivery options.
