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

For the health and safety of our clients and our staff, we are working on adjustments to our office and intake setups. Safety of our clients and our staff is always first priority! We ask that you call before you come in, as some of our programs are still not able to accept walk ins. We will be more than happy to help you over the phone or by setting up other arrangements when necessary. Please click on the link below for specific contact information.

Here’s how to reach out to us.

Our Grand Rapids office is open Monday-Friday 10:00am-1:00pm and 1:30pm-4:30pm.

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.
