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.

In September 2020, Minnesota Public Radio launched small change: Money Stories from the Neighborhood. Co-hosted by Twila Dang and Chris Farrell . . .

Fifty years later, in the same spirit of the original Poor People’s Campaign, Reverends William J. Barber and Liz Theoharis established the new Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival . . .

An increasing number of American schools and universities, cities, and states officially acknowledge Indigenous People’s Day, including Minnesota, which began observing this holiday via official proclamation in 2019.
