The mission of Community Action Partnership is to reduce poverty and its impacts on people in Ramsey and Washington counties.
Community Action Partnership of Ramsey & Washington Counties is part of a national nonprofit network that helps 17 million low-income Americans annually achieve economioc security. Closer to home, we help almost 22,000 low-income households in Ramsey and Washington counties achieve success each year.
For 50 years, Community Action has provided a local, flexible, single point of entry for programs that life people up. Whether it's early childhood education, transportation, saving for a home, getting an education or raising awareness, we strive to help people become independent and have a voice in our community - and to make America a better place to live.
At Community Action, we continously stay in touch with the needs of our community, looking for new ideas and new understandings about the issues that low-income individuals and families face.
To make sure we stay grounded and close to our participants, our Board of Directors includes members from those we serve, from city and state government and from the surrounding community. Our partnerships with agencies and nonprofits in the Washington and Ramsey County area ensure we're building an efficient and effective network.
Civic Engagement: The community plays an important role in our shared mission to reduce poverty. We raise awareness of issues affecting low-income individuals and families and also help low-income people engage in the civic arena directly, through voting and developing their leadership skills to increase community involvement.
Volunteers: We match voluntees with opportunities that are meaningful and meet their scheduling needs. By helping those in need, our volunteers develop new skills, gain practical and rewarding experience, build teams, and promote active community pparticipation. Volunteers at Community Action reach out, help people become more self-sufficient, and change people's lives - one person, one famiily, one neighbor at a time.
