Partnering with People to Overcome Poverty

At Community Action Partnership of Ramsey & Washington Counties (Community Action), we work alongside our neighbors, program participants, and partners like YOU to create a future in which all people can achieve their potential. We provide a foundation for stability and success through programs that serve low-income people. We amplify the voices of those living in poverty by educating the broader community about the support and assistance that is needed. We transform communities by collaborating with other agencies and policy-makers to remove barriers that perpetuate poverty. Our Board of Directors is unique--fully one third of its members live low-income lives--ensuring that first hand experience drives our work.

Last year, Community Action worked with thousands of people across the region to support low-income individuals and families. This work included:

  • Providing 1,840 children with comprehensive early childhood education through Head Start
  • Preventing homelessness for 426 individuals with emergency rent or mortgage assistance
  • Delivering Energy Assistance to 56,084 people and averting utility shut-off for 16,974 households
  • Helping 8,795 senior citizens maintain independent living
  • Improving conditions in which low-income families live by weatherizing 167 homes and providing home repair to 437 households
  • Partnering 194 times with other community organizations to support low-income people who are seeking to improve their life circumstances
  • Hosting volunteers who completed 23,690 hours of service in their community
  • Mobilizing 1,580 community members through voter education, participation in community projects, and anti-poverty initiatives
  • Supporting 426 households working to increase their income, stabilize their finances, and grow their savings through asset building programs, employment support, and low-interest car loans

YOU make an instrumental difference in Community Action's ability to collaborate with people to overcome poverty.  YOUR support makes it possible for Community Action to SERVE, EDUCATE, & TRANSFORM--thank you!
