About Us

Community Action Partnership of Hennepin County (CAP-HC) is a state and federally certified Community Action agency that serves the residents of Hennepin County. We are part of a national network of over 1000 Community Action Agencies committed to poverty reduction. The network was established in 1964 with the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act.

Established in 1986, CAP-HC is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formerly known as Community Action Partnership of Suburban Hennepin. In 2016, the agency received official designation from then-Governor Mark Dayton's office to extend Community Action Agency services to Minneapolis residents. Today, we are excited to serve all of Hennepin County with viable and multifaceted anti-poverty programming.

CAP-HC has an array of community-centered programs and services, including Energy Assistance, Water Assistance, Financial Literacy, Vehicle Repair Program, Rental Assistance, and Homebuyer Services. The agency develops partnerships to address poverty while creating avenues of self-sufficiency for individuals and families.

The agency practices Results-Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA). 

In addition to our main office in Saint Louis Park, CAP-HC has three satellite EAP offices in Minneapolis: Sabathani Community Center (Southside), Minneapolis Urban League (Northside), and Lutheran Social Services, Minneapolis.
