Greene Lamp was chartered on September 16, 1965, as a 501(c)3 non-profit Community Action Agency. Greene Lamp was established when two different
anti-poverty programs merged; Greene County Community Action Committee and LAMP, Inc. (Lenoir Action Mobilization for Progress) thus the origination of Greene Lamp.
Since 1965, Greene Lamp has provided services to low income residents of Greene and Lenoir counties and expanded services to other eastern North Carolina counties to currently include Beaufort, Craven, Duplin, Pamlico and Pitt counties. – less
