Investigating the Impact of Poverty
The Tri-County Opportunities Council (TCOC), Community Action Agency, was organized and incorporated in 1965 by a group of interested citizens from Lee, Ogle and Whiteside counties for the purposes of investigating the frequency, location, character and cause of poverty; and coordinating efforts to prevent, alleviate and eliminate poverty through the cooperation of public agencies, private organizations, business, industry and interested individuals.
