Imagine holding the power to change lives…and the lives you help change go on to change others.
That’s what we do at Community Action Partnership of Greater St. Joseph (CAP St. Joe). Since its founding in 1965, CAP St. Joe has been helping low-income residents of Andrew, Buchanan, Clinton and DeKalb counties in Northwest Missouri achieve economic sustainability and self-sufficiency.
Each day, we help your neighbors – those working two or three jobs to keep food on their family’s table, a senior making the choice between medication and heat during the winter and even a young child struggling in school because of no home to go to in the afternoon. Each family and individual needs specialized help, and CAP St. Joe provides help through a variety long-term and short-term strategies.
Our vision is a community that works together to end poverty once and for all. CAP St. Joe partners with a variety of businesses, social service agencies, government entities and educational institutions to help change lives, one individual at a time.
