On February 28th, CAP Agency was selected for one of four “Best Practice” Awards from Minnesota Community Action Partnership for our work with Project Community Connect! This award was given to programs that provide positive and measurable change while engaging the community in eliminating poverty.
Every year, Scott Carver Dakota CAP Agency, in partnership with Scott and Carver counties, hosts the annual Project Community Connect event. This community event offered a one-stop location for direct services to residents of Scott and Carver Counties who are “living on little,” those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Resources available at the event include housing, employment services, food assistance, early education, mental health, legal services, dental exams, cancer screenings, haircuts, chemical dependency assistance.
We are beyond excited at the recognition of the impact of PCC by this award and hope that it inspires other communities to take similar action. 2018’s Project Community Connect event will take place on September 12th from 10am-6pm at Canterbury Park Expo Center in Shakopee, MN.
