Fighting Poverty, Advancing Equity 

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported CAP-HC for Give to the Max this November! We're over 60% to our "Fighting Poverty, Advancing Equity" campaign goal to raise $10,000 by December 31.  

Poverty is a complex issue that requires multi-faceted solutions. 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 stabilize—and help them learn new skills and build assets so they can pave their own path to prosperity.

When you donate to CAP-HC in any amount, you’re building a stronger, more equitable community—now and for the generations that follow. Thank you for your support!

Our Work

Established in 1986, CAP-HC creates services, programs, and partnerships that serve Hennepin County's residents with lower incomes, creating opportunities for them to stabilize and build skills to become self-sufficient. These resources address the specific factors that cause and reinforce poverty in Hennepin County, increase economic stability, and help individuals and families lift themselves out of poverty.    

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.  Your donation provides vital support for our work in the fight against poverty.  

CAP-HC is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.
