MISSION STATEMENT

In partnership with our community, CAPCA is committed to educating eligible participants by providing quality services which empower lives, expand self-reliance and increase community involvement.

BELIEFS

We believe that in order for citizens to succeed certain key ingredients such as opportunity and resources are essential. Statistics show that poverty touches a large proportion of Americans over their lifetime. Sometimes it is a chronic condition that persists over several generations. More often, poverty comes as a consequence of life’s unremarkable tragedies-illness, job loss, divorce or disability – that can destroy a family’s ability to support itself. Regardless of the cause, most families struggle against their predicament, and many fight their way out of poverty. CAPCA can provide ways to assist in waging this fight against poverty.
