The Action Group is a non-profit, community Agency supporting adults and children with developmental disabilities. Established over 40 years ago, the Action Group provides services throughout Central Alberta from its main office in Lacombe. The Agency has been providing services to the community since 1976 and continues to expand its service delivery model. The Action Group operates with a volunteer board of directors who hires an Executive Director to manage the operations of the organization.
The membership sets the direction of the organization through various means. The membership establishes the mission statement, vision statement, and the values and beliefs statements. Each year these statements are reviewed, revised, or affirmed by the membership at the annual planning session.
The mission statement of the Action Group is to make a difference in our communities by providing education and services that help people become leaders in their own lives.
The Action Group will be a recognized leader in the development and provision of quality supports for building whole communities.
