Our Programs

SCCAP programs and initiatives are organized into a service line structure.  This allows programs to work together, using best practices, to benefit the families we serve.


SCCAP's Family and Asset Development Programs

These programs work with the family to design effective interventions or changes that can help the family build long term stability. All programs except Weatherization include case management and ongoing support to assist the family in setting and meeting their goals.

Weatherization involves a comprehensive assessment of a home's energy usage efficiency and follows evidence based protocols to improve energy usage for the family.


SCCAP's Education and Employment Programs

These programs support a family as they work to build their skills, obtain employment and then advance in their career. Whether an individual needs to develop soft skills or hard skills and education or a family needs the very tangible support of quality early learning programs for their children so they can work, SCCAP can assist a them on their journey to a livable wage for their family.


SCCAP's Health and Nutrition Programs

It is hard to focus on developing an effective future story if you or your children are hungry. These programs work to meet the very basic needs of a family - access to healthy food.
