Jobs for Life:
Become employable for the rest of your life!
If you are unemployed or under-employed, the Jobs for Life class can assist you in building skills needed for employment to provide for you and your family.  JFL is not just about finding a job, it is identifying your purpose and skills to become employable for life! 

As a graduate, you will:
Be prepared for job interviews
Create a professional resume
Complete a vocational plan
Be eligible for scholarships to learn a new trade or degree
Meet with local employers
Build a supportive network
Identify roadblocks that may be keeping you from retaining or getting a job.

Jobs for Life is much more about finding a job, it is a choice to start “fishing!”

We have all heard the saying; "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime." Do you always feel like you are swimming against the stream? Many social service programs available to families are often "quick fixes" and do not solve the endless cycle being trapped in poverty. CAPCIL no longer wants to be a "quick fix". After some major re-grouping, we now have services to teach you to “fish” and provide you with the tools you need to move from being dependent on service aids to becoming self-sufficient. The goal of these programs are to give you a “Hand Up”. Only you can decide if you want to go fishing, or continually swim against the tide!



Financial Peace University: 
Become debt free for the rest of your life! 
We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU gives you practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!
As a graduate, you will:
Learn on how to take control of your money
Save an emergency fund (up to $1000)
Learn how to spend and save wisely
Plan for expenses (Christmas, birthdays, utilities, car insurance, etc.)
Plan for the future


Home Ownership Counseling:         

Become a homeowner, yes it is possible for your life!
If you dream of owning your own home, it can become a reality if you set realistic goals, get sound advice, plan carefully, and clearly understand the costs and steps towards home ownership. This class provides you with the tools needed to decide if you are ready for home ownership or setting goals to eventually own your own home.

As a graduate, you will:
Understand the steps to buying a house
Learn how lenders determine affordability
Learn what the key people roles are in your home buying team
Understand the advantages and disadvantages of owning a home
Know if you are ready to buy a home
