KOOTASCA Community Action is here to help. We want to take measures to keep you and our staff safe and reduce unnecessary exposures.

In light of governor Walz’s Stay At Home order, our offices will be closed to the public while this is in effect, from March 27th to April 10th, but our staff is still here to help you.

Here’s how to reach out to us.

KOOTASCA Community Action

Founded by local citizens in 1965, KOOTASCA Community Action helps individuals, families, and communities fight the multiple causes and challenges of poverty.

  • Through comprehensive crisis support, anti-poverty services, and partner referral, we help people to help themselves make meaningful change in their lives and journey out of poverty.
  • Our mission, “Building Community to End Poverty,” is a collaborative effort with our community to change attitudes and mindsets about poverty, to change the systems that affect people in poverty, and to engage all community members in creating a community that provides opportunities for everyone.
