Community Action Network

Community Action Network was a volunteer, nonprofit, tax-exempt idea clearinghouse that collects and shares practical solutions to community social problems. CAN was founded by media industry leaders to create a library of solutions that has proved effective in helping people combat challenges they encounter daily.

       The need for resources like this is obvious: innovative, effective ideas that help solve critical problems are seldom outside the immediate locale in which they originate. CAN opens this reservoir of good ideas to everyone.

       The ideas are organized in booklets of 20 problem categories:

  • Aids
  • Alcohol Abuse
  • Child Abuse
  • Criminal Justice
  • Disadvantaged
  • Drug Abuse
  • Drunk Driving
  • Education
  • Elderly Care
  • Environment
  • Family Concerns
  • Health Care
  • Homeless
  • Housing
  • Hunger
  • Missing Children
  • Rape
  • Street Crime
  • Teenage Suicide
  • Unemployment
