From the start, CACLV has focused on supporting entrepreneurs in the process of establishing or growing their own small businesses. Entrepreneurs receive comprehensive training from experts in the local business community on topics such as marketing, financial statements, borrowing and saving, and much more.
We provide energy savings and assistance with heating bills and education to our participants, thereby improving their quality of life and giving them the opportunity to pursue other economic opportunity.
From the minimum wage (and it sure is minimal!) to smart growth, CACLV is actively speaking out with and for low-income people and their communities. CACLV has earned its reputation as an outspoken advocate, one that is driven by a clear set of values.
