For many, CAP-HC is their last stop before power and heat disconnection, foreclosure, homelessness, or bankruptcy. For others, it's a place to learn how to buy a home, create a budget, or find a job.

CAP-HC is a state and federally certified Community Action organization, one of over 1,000 organizations that make up the National Community Action Network. The network was established in 1964 with the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act and is committed to reducing poverty in the United States.

When initially established in 1986, CAP-HC was known as Community Action Partnership of Suburban Hennepin. The nonprofit received official designation from then-Governor Mark Dayton's office to extend its services to Minneapolis residents in 2016. Today, we serve all of Hennepin County with viable and multifaceted anti-poverty programming.

In addition to our main office in Brooklyn Park, CAP-HC has offices in Bloomington and Minneapolis.
