Take Action


Become a Volunteer in Action

Volunteering is a great way to make difference in your community by donating your time and talents. When you volunteer with Community Action, you are taking action to work with your neighbors to overcome the effects of poverty on people's lives.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Are you part of a group looking to invest in your community’s housing efforts? Community Action rents out 7 units per year to families living in Ramsey and Washington counties under 60% of the area median income. Community Action's Affordable Housing program is seeking a dedicated group of 5-15 volunteers to clean up a community property to prepare a North St. Paul house for renting to a family in need this Winter! Email if you think your group is a fit.

COVID-19 Regulations

At Community Action, we deeply value our volunteers. We are committed to the safety and well-being of our communities. The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, and we are taking the appropriate precautions based on the information from the Minnesota Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control.
