KOOTASCA Community Action is here to help.

For the health and safety of our clients and our staff, 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 to set up other arrangements if needed.

Here’s how to reach out to us. (Updated Nov. 16th)
