Fifty years ago, Community Enabler founder and Director Maudine Holloway saw the needs in her community of Anniston. She responded with zeal.

“We are a program that was born out of the Methodist Church,” Holloway said. “Our concern was community needs, what the regular folks needed. We operate like this: I’m not gonna give you what I think you need, but you tell me what you need.”

Perhaps the mission statement says it all: “Enabling the community to become sensitized to the needs of the poor and to participate in public and private advocacy for the disadvantaged. Developing ministries that will meet the needs of the disadvantaged. Meeting the unmet needs of the citizens of Calhoun County.”
