Together We Can

Community Action Network (CAN) is a nonprofit organization located in Washtenaw County, Michigan. CAN operates multiple community centers across the county, all located within communities that are under-resourced. CAN envisions the closing of socio-economic gaps by providing educational and enrichment programs for children and teens, supportive services for families, and challenging systems rooted in racism and inequality.

In addition to ensuring our families have the support and resources they need to provide better futures for themselves and improve the communities in which they live, we are dedicated to assisting other organizations and educators by providing access to the same successful program procedures, materials, templates, and trainings we have developed in over 30 years of partnerships with our communities to ensure we can all effectively work together to create brighter futures.
