What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Prenatal to Five Head Start

Head Start is an innovative, whole-family approach to early child development. The program can work with a family on an individual basis from the prenatal stage until the child starts kindergarten. CAP St. Joe manages 14 Head Start Centers across four counties, and an active Home Visit program, serving a total of 483 low-income students. Services include school-ready curriculum, physical, mental and dental screenings, immunizations and opportunities for whole-family goal-setting and involvement.

Program 3

Energy Assistance and Community Development

The Energy Assistance program provides immediate assistance for families whose utilities have been disconnected or are under threat of disconnection. Families must be income-eligible and many learn to conserve heat/energy through weatherization classes. Community Development also offers life skills, budgeting and leadership classes, and works with employers to help establish and retain employment for low-income employees through  the Missouri Works Assistance program.

Program 4

Weatherization

Weatherization is a process focused on making a home more energy efficient and safe. CAP St. Joe's program is focused on a whole-house approach, which assesses the needs and priorities within a house and works to get the house well-sealed based on those needs. This program is funded through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds received through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Funding Needs

Community Action Partnership seeks private funds to help families in the working poor category (those who earn 125-200% of federal poverty guidelines), a segment of the population who is not eligible for federal funding. Unrestricted funds mean we can expand and enhance our programs to meet the needs of our community. With unrestricted funds, we could help the working poor, expand our Head Start services, serve more teens in poverty, help more people with utilities and build new homes to provide stability to low-income families.
