Selected as TIAA
TIAA has selected Case Manager Paula Daniels of Mid-Cumberland Community Action Agency as recipient of a Difference Maker 100 award. The award is designed to honor extraordinary people who have devoted their lives to improving the world and making a recognizable difference in their communities and the nonprofit organizations they serve. TIAA received over 4,000 applications for the awards and narrowed their selection to 100 honorees. Each nonprofit represented by the honorees will receive $10,000 from TIAA.
Daniels was selected based upon the social impact of her work in helping move people from poverty to financial stability. As a case manager, Daniels considers the individual circumstances facing the customers she serves and helps them design a plan to improve their lives as a whole. From creating a budget to paying rent or utility bills to helping an individual improve job skills, Daniels utilizes a variety of MCCAA programs and community partners to help her customers access the help they need to move from lack to self-sustainability.
MCCAA is very proud of Daniels and congratulates her on her many accomplishments. She is truly an asset to the team as she helps MCCAA fulfill its mission of empowering people and communities toward economic independence.
