To improve the quality of life in suburban Hennepin County by creating and supporting links between individuals and communities through services, education and collaboration.
CAPSH is the state- and federally-certified community action agency that serves the 45 communities of suburban Hennepin County. CAPSH's vision is to be the preeminent poverty-fighting agency for suburban Hennepin County. CAPSH is dedicated to helping people move out of poverty and into self-sufficiency, and strengthening communities by doing so. We seek to accomplish this vision through providing direct services to clients, including homeless/transitional housing, foreclosure prevention, reverse mortgage counseling, budget counseling, employment counseling and assistance, and providing assistance to low-income first-time homebuyers and current homeowners (home rehabilitation and maintenance). CAPSH also operates the Energy Assistance program in suburban Hennepin County. CAPSH further provides assistance to other organizations that work directly with those in need (e.g. emergency assistance providers), and offers community development assistance to entities formed to help low-income and underrepresented groups (e.g. youth, minorities).
