Community Action Network

Describe the photo or the page it links to

The Community Action Network Program (CANP) is designed to help bridge the generation gap between youth and elders through various interactive events. By building more positive relationships between the generations, we are able to strengthen and empower the community.

Your support ensures that we are able to continue providing many programs and services to our ever increasing youth and elderly population.



Bethany/Development Outreach Mt. Morris Plaza Neighborhood Network is a U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) approved Neighborhood Network Center. Through technology we strive to bridge the generation gap between seniors and youth. Youth interns help seniors become familar with computers.

Through interactive activities such as quitting, crocheting, arts and crafts, day trips, college tours and retreats, elders and youth come together to share and enjoy each others company.  Not only are valuable lessons learned but confidence is built and a great sense of accomplishment is celebrated with the completion of each crafted project.
