United Community Action Partnership is a joint effort to bring together area resources to effectively and efficiently address the growing needs of our local communities in southwest Minnesota.
United Community Action Partnership Inc., is a familiar face and trusted friend in southwest Minnesota but with a new name. The new name – United Community Action Partnership, Inc. – was adopted through the merging of two organizations (Heartland Community Action and Western Community Action) with a rich history of helping people, changing lives, and working to eliminate poverty in the lives of people in Cottonwood, Jackson, Kandiyohi, Lincoln, Lyon, McLeod, Meeker, Redwood and Renville counties.
While the new United Community Action Partnership brings together a multitude of resources to help communities prosper, the physical office location of each of the entities has not changed.
Mission: Eliminating poverty by empowering individuals and strengthening communities.
As United Community Action Partnership Inc., the combined organization with over 200 employees continues to hold true to its history of being a “grass-roots” private nonprofit organization that is represented and led by the communities it serves. The governing board includes three people from each county served with each county providing one elected official, one private sector representative, one consumer of services representative (poverty-level income household), whose experience and/or skill set provides additional insight to the local context. Through this composition, community members are both stakeholders and decision makers in achieving United Community Action Partnership’s mission of Eliminating poverty by empowering individuals and strengthening communities.
