Greene Lamp Community Action has had a very exciting and effective year. The staff continues to produce program outcomes, family and individual successes and being a change agent in the communities we serve.

Serving as the Executive Director of Greene Lamp is an honor and a privilege. To watch this agency have a positive impact on individuals and communities in eastern North Carolina is a humbling experience. Greene Lamp assists more than 3,000 individuals through its programs and services.

The committed staff of Greene Lamp provides a wide variety of services that stabilizes households; connects families to employment and training opportunities; provides comprehensive early childhood learning opportunities; offers volunteering services to individuals with special needs; and improves the living conditions of low-income communities.

Our success is driven by competent and dedicated team members who go beyond their job descriptions to assist those in need. Greene Lamp’s team combined with a vibrant Board of Directors provide the foundation for continued success.

I would also like to thank Greene Lamp’s funders, sponsors, and internal and external stakeholders for your continued support. WE are COMMUNITY ACTION and WE are dedicated to Helping People, Changing Lives.
