Kenosha 2nd Floor Lift: Complete!
RKCAA’s goal is to increase Community Nutrition Services by increasing access to our Teaching Kitchen and Community Room which are located on our 2nd floor. By installing a Lift, access would be available to everyone!
- Multigenerational opportunities in our Teaching Kitchen. Senior citizens could offer their expertise in our Teaching Kitchen relating to recipes, food preparation and tips for stretching a family’s food dollars.
- Nutrition education and cooking opportunities for seniors participating in our Cupboard Bound program or Senior Fruit & Vegetable voucher program.
- Additional programming would be available from our community partners who could utilize our Teaching Kitchen as part of their services.
- The Lift will allow us to enhance nutrition and health services for all of our families as well as the broader community. Cooking classes, weight loss classes, and special events hosted by multiple agencies could be implemented.
RKCAA thanks the following for their support of the Lift project: Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, Kenosha Community Development Block Grant, Kenosha Community Foundation, Kenosha Women’s Network and the Kenosha Rotary. Please consider a donation to support opportunities for improved nutrition and health for individuals and families.

Through a grant with the Covering Kids and Families organization, the Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency has hired two Healthcare Navigators. One Navigator will be responsible for Racine and Kenosha counties while the other will concentrate her efforts in Walworth and Rock counties.
The purpose of the Navigator is to provide information and education to the community about the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) and to provide assistance to consumers and organizations working with individuals interested in enrolling in an Insurance Marketplace plan.
The Racine/Kenosha Navigator will be available by appointment at the Racine Community Action office as well as at various sites throughout Racine and Kenosha counties. The Walworth/Rock Navigator will be based in Janesville but will be available for appointments throughout Walworth and Rock counties.
If you or someone you know has questions about how the Affordable Care Act can help you or if you’re interested in enrolling and need some help, you may reach the Navigators at the following numbers:
