About Red River Valley Community Action

Red River Valley Community Action (RRVCA) is a private, non-profit human service organization serving Grand Forks, Nelson, Pembina and Walsh counties in North Dakota.  Like community action agencies across the nation, RRVCA works to focus private and public resources on the goal of helping low-income people improve their lives.  This includes helping people obtain the education, skills, knowledge, and motivation they need to achieve economic independence for the rest of their lives.

Eligibility for most programs is based on either federal or state income guidelines.  These guidelines vary from program to program and intake forms are used to determine client eligibility. Our programs serve low-income individuals, families, senior citizens and others in crisis situations.

Community Action’s Promise

Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live.  We care about the entire community and are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

The Mission of Red River Valley Community Action

Helping low-income families and individuals achieve economic self-sufficiency through a provision of programs, services, and community building.
