CAPCIL

​​​A word from our Executive Director

Metamorphic rocks form when they are subjected to high heat, high pressure, hot mineral-rich fluids or, more commonly, some combination of these factors. The Agency has been faced with  with high-pressure and high heat over recent years. Financial stresses from budget impasses and shifting political priorities, organizational culture challenges with a diverse and blended workforce, and the societal attitudes that are constantly shifting around us dramatically impact our daily work.  But as Henry Kissinger said, “A diamond is merely a chunk of coal that is made good under pressure.” CAPCIL has refined its mission and the pursuit of that mission. It has garnered a better understanding of how important strong partnerships are to grow and succeed.   New relationships with faith partners, opioid warriors, thrift store aficionados, food distributors, education providers, workforce builders, and donors are being built and strengthened.  As CAPCIL continues its efforts to develop and pursue innovative programming, the importance of healthy and mutually respectful partnerships are more critical than ever. CAPCIL is lead by a Governing Board that imparts wisdom that the Agency has come to rely on heavily. I am always reminded that when the weight of the poverty war sits on the shoulders of those on the front lines, our staff  and customers are the diamonds being made here at Community Action.

Steve Lobb

Governing Board President

To start 2015, CAPCIL was in pursuit of programming that strategically aligned with our decision to refocus efforts on creating poverty-fighting initiatives that deal with the causes of poverty and not just the consequences.  Our Governing Board had been moving the Agency in that direction, but 2015 was the year the endeavor was tackled full on.  New programs like Jobs for Life and Financial Peace University found their way into CAPCIL’s menu of services. Foundational programs like Head Start journeyed back to its roots of giving families an active and integral role in taking ownership over building family stability and making the child’s education a family endeavor. We redesigned our intake and case management business model so that family self-sufficiency plans resulted in real and substantive changes in the lives of our clients.  We sought out new community partnerships and groomed our old friends for the new direction we were taking.  We approached 2015 with the belief that the circumstances that lead our customers into poverty are not one-dimensional, and that our solutions to assist them should not be one-dimensional.

Our vision is clear and we are dedicated to continuing our efforts to get ahead of the curve.
