Agency Resource Guide 2019-2020


CAP Agency strengthens our communities by offering residents of Scott, Carver, and Dakota counties access to early childhood education, nutritious food, stable housing, and other resources through 24 different programs and services. All programs fall under one of our five areas of focus:

Crisis Prevention & Goal Planning

Many families come to us in crisis. We work with an interdisciplinary team to assess need and determine appropriate responses. We know the key to achieving any goals is to have a plan. At CAP, we work in partnership with families to establish realistic, obtainable goals to ensure long-term success.

Food & Nutrition

A critical component to a healthy life is nutrition. CAP works to ensure that individuals and families have physical and economic access to sufficient and nutritious food.

Safe & Stable Housing

A safe, stable home is vital for both physical health and mental well-being. We know that investing in safe and stable housing reduces societal health care and education costs now, and in the future.


Education is a key component in achieving economic security. At CAP, we make significant investments in early childhood education.

Community Outreach

CAP also provides families access to supplemental resources – clothing, school supplies, and holiday items – as they work to achieve sustainable economic and social well-being.


CAP provides the support people need to get back on their feet now, and the tools and resources needed to be self-sufficient for the road ahead. In 2013, we positively enhanced the lives of over 50,000 people:
