United Community Acton Partnership (UCAP) is a newly merged agency made up of two agencies previously known as Western Community Action and Heartland Community Action Agency.  Both organizations had been in existence for over 52 years prior to the merger which occurred October 1, 2016.  UCAP's primary service area includes the counties of Cottonwood, Jackson, Kandiyohi, Lincoln, Lyon, McLeod, Meeker, Redwood and Renville in southwest Minnesota. 

As an agency who has spent its collective history serving vulnerable people, many of whom are in crisis, UCAP has experience in connecting people in need with services that help them.  

UCAP’s mission is “eliminating poverty by empowering individuals and strengthening communities.”

We implement our mission by advocating for and providing direct services to low-income persons. Services that we currently provide  include:  Head Start/Early Head Start, thrift stores, food shelves, family based in-home parenting, Kitchen Kamp, emergency housing assistance, housing development, small cities grants, Energy Assistance, Weatherization, Child Care Aware, health care enrollment, free tax clinics, refugee resettlement programs, SNAP Outreach, youth mentoring, public transit and the Helping People Get There vehicle donation program. 

United Community Action strives to make our programs as “high impact” as possible.  In other words, we no longer want to place the “band aid” on a situation, but instead empower families to strive for self-reliance.
