Oregon Coast Community Action (ORCCA) was originally incorporated in 1965 as Southwestern Oregon Community Action Committee. ORCCA is one of the first Community Action agencies created during the administration of Lyndon B. Johnson. For more information on Community Action visit the Community Action Partnership website.
In 2006, the name was changed to create greater distinction in the communities we serve and as part of a national campaign to create a compelling image of Community Action. The “huggy” heart is symbolic of the national byline, “Community Action Partnership — Helping People. Changing Lives.”
We incorporated the orca and wave to bring our name to life and symbolize our vision that through community action all south coast families can thrive and live with dignity, security, and hope.
The wave symbolizes the power we have to help others by working together. The orca symbolizes a close-knit community where resources are shared to feed, house, warm, and educate.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” - Helen Keller
