Established nearly 50 years ago, Wateree Community Actions Inc. (WCAI) is in the process of updating its policies and revamping its vision according to Public Information Director Kenya Mingo. The group’s overall objective is to help the community’s poor and disadvantaged become self-sufficient by providing resources like youth leadership programs, educational opportunities and temporary housing to those in need. Mingo said the organization, created in 1964 through the Economic Opportunity Act, is upgrading its services to operate more effectively in the five counties it serves -- Kershaw, Clarendon, Lee, Richland, and Sumter.
