The agency is committed to providing comprehensive services to children,  adults, seniors and families.

Today, ACAP continues to mobilize resources, plan, and integrate programs and donations that best meet our community’s needs. By coordinating multiple programs and resources, ACAP achieves its mission working with families every day.
