Mission Statement:
SCAP is committed to alleviating the symptoms and eradicating the causes of poverty by helping people help themselves when they are in economic, educational, or social need. We do this by identifying changing community needs and mobilizing resources; administering programs that address ongoing community needs; and individual and systematic advocacy on behalf of those SCAP serves.


Vision Statement:
SCAP assists families and individuals to meet their basic needs, including housing, food, health, education and employment, while supporting their efforts to become self-reliant. SCAP’s continuum of services are customer-centered based on the changing needs of the community, and are provided with respect and in confidence without regard to age or other diversities.

SCAP will be a leader in assessing, improving and expanding a network of community services that fosters self-reliance through responsive, supportive, progressive, and integrated multi-agency services. SCAP will strengthen the community’s understanding of the issues of low-income households and build partnerships and support for its mission. SCAP will implement programs and services using measurable best practices and provide consultative services in the areas of direct service provision, program development, case management and fiscal management.
