Partnering with People to Overcome Poverty


For more than 50 years, Community Action Partnership of Ramsey and Washington Counties has served our community, educated the public, and transformed systems. Learn more and take action.

Community Action Resource Center Open to the Public

Community Action continues to offer critical supports including processing applications and distributing Energy Assistance during this time, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some Community Action offices and tenant suites will continue to be closed to walk-in traffic.

If you are attempting to seek services from one of our building tenants please contact them directly or go to their website for further information.  

All people entering our buildings will be expected to follow local and state safety protocols to minimize COVID-19 public health risks including wearing face coverings/masks, practicing safe social distancing of 6 feet or more, frequent hand washing, and staying home if experiencing symptoms.

Working Together: The Community Action Blog

In the spirit and vision of Dr. King’s original Poor People’s Campaign in 1968, co-chairs of the new Poor People’s Campaign are calling on all Americans to join together at 4:30 pm (CST), June 21, 2021 . . .

This measure still must pass a vote in the House of Representatives before being officially signed into law by President Joe Biden . . .

This inequity is what scholars, activists, and advocates have come to call the hunger divide. Second Harvest Heartland is just one organization working to address this issue and bring attention to the latest research . . .
