Thank you to each and every person who donated and spread the word about CAP-HC for Give to the Max Day!
We're making progress toward our Fighting Poverty, Advancing Equity Campaign goal to raise $10,000 by Dec. 31. With your support, we can make our vision a reality: Hennepin County without poverty.
Fighting Poverty, Advancing Equity
Traditionally marginalized communities are more susceptible to poverty. As one illustration of this fact, the poverty rate in Hennepin County is 10 percent. However, while less than one-third of the total county population self-identity as people of color, 62 percent of people living below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) self-identify as people of color.
At Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County (CAP-HC), we fight poverty holistically by connecting residents with lower incomes to a broad range of services. These services help people navigate crisis situations, learn new skills, and build assets that bring stability and prosperity to their lives. We eliminate barriers and create opportunities so that people can lift themselves out of poverty, making our community stronger now—and for the generations that follow.
We can’t do this work without your support. Between now and Dec. 31, including Give to the Max Day on Nov. 18, our goal is to raise $10,000 to fight poverty and advance equity in Hennepin County. You can build a stronger, more equitable Hennepin County with a one-time or monthly donation in any amount. Thank you for your generosity!
