KOOTASCA Community Action is here to help. The safety of our clients and our staff is always first priority!

Our offices are open, but due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we ask that you call before you come in, as some of our programs are not able to accept walk-ins. We will be more than happy to help you over the phone Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:30pm or by setting up other arrangements when necessary.

  • Our Grand Rapids office lobby is open Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:30pm
  • Our International Falls office lobby is open Monday-Thursday 10:00am-2:00pm. If you are here before or after posted hours, please ring the doorbell and staff will assist you if they are available.

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.
