Listening to Our Neighbors

From the our very beginnings in 1964, our movement has charged communities to work together with the true "experts" on poverty—low-income people themselves—to create effective solutions and appropriate supports. As such, we conduct a Community Needs Assessment every three years with the goal of understanding the underlying causes and conditions of poverty to address the unmet needs of the most vulnerable residents in our service area. 

Find the Right Resource for You

Listening to our neighbors and determining the needs of the communities we serve, Community Action not only provides services and programs that aim to reduce the causes of poverty but we also act as a hub to other resources available in Ramsey and Washington Counties that address the issues at the forefront of our Community Needs Assessment. Here are a list of resources that help to serve, educate, and transform our communities:
