The Kansas Association of Community Action Programs. (KACAP) exists to support Kansas' eight Community Action Agencies in their local, state, regional and national efforts to end poverty. We do this because we believe that all people deserve a chance.
The Spirit of Hope Starts Here:
Community Action Agencies across the country serve 15 million low-income individuals each year. In Kansas, 350,000 people, including children and people with disabilities, fall at or below the poverty line. These people have access to services to aid during an emergency (including COVID-19), support a long-term goal or transition, increase skills, secure safe, affordable, and decent housing, provide health services or transportation, and much more.
The Promise of Community Action:
Community action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
