The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Newcap's mission for over 50 years has been to move people from poverty to opportunities and economic security and improve communities.
In an ideal world, poverty would be non-existent. Unfortunately, in the real world poverty does exist. Newcap seeks to change that reality. That’s why Newcap offers crisis care for people who find themselves in desperate situations, safety is in question, or food is scarce. That’s why Newcap assists those needing to stabilize their lives by securing a job, obtaining reliable transportation, or establishing a permanent residence. And that’s why Newcap supports those who need help planning budgets, purchasing homes, and building job skills.
No matter where someone is on the poverty and economic security scale, Newcap can help. Newcap has the resources, the personnel, and most importantly, the compassion to make a difference, and to fulfill its mission to move people from poverty to opportunities and economic security and improve communities.
People live in varying circumstances and therefore have different and very unique needs. Newcap offers programs to match. Newcap serves 12 counties in northern and northeastern Wisconsin with Crisis, Stability, Success, and Community Improvement programs.
