Board of Directors 

CAP-HC has opportunities for Hennepin County residents, who are interested in strengthening communities in Hennepin County and removing barriers that low-to-moderate income residents face. The Board of Directors for CAP-HC represents private, public, and community interests. We seek dedicated volunteers to apply for membership on the Board of Directors. Board members play an important role in guiding the agency and assisting people currently living in poverty.

CAP-HC is a private, non-profit agency funded by federal, state, and local grants to help people experiencing poverty, and work to eliminate the causes of poverty. We currently counsel prospective home buyers, assists homeowners facing foreclosure, educate the community about poverty and related issues, and work in partnership with human services providers to address the needs of people in poverty.
