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.
