C.A.P.E. partners and works directly with community agencies to assess the evolving needs of disadvantaged populations, in order to address access barriers head on. In this effort, C.A.P.E. focuses on three primary areas:
Quality of Life Programming
Through a continued assessment of needs, C.A.P.E. works with partnering agencies to provide new opportunities and unique quality of life programming that directly meets the needs of the populations served by its partnering agencies.
Homeless Services (Uplift Eureka)
Uplift Eureka supports community members experiencing homelessness with accessing vital community resources to obtain housing, employment, and reclaim their independence. Uplift achieves this through services such as Street Outreach and Rapid Rehousing.
C.A.P.E. is dedicated to providing community members with the support and guidance needed to gain stable employment. The Job Skills Training Program and the Pathway to Payday Employment Workshop Series are designed to help individuals overcome barriers and build the skills necessary to enter the workforce.
C.A.P.E. has established successful partnerships with local organizations who serve target demographics, allowing us to better serve our community and execute programs directly at partner agency locations. The organizations that we choose to partner with have demonstrated a community-centered approach, and serve individuals and families facing real need.
The City of Eureka provides ongoing financial support to the Betty Kwan Chinn Homeless Foundation to provide food, shelter and case management services to families and individuals experiencing homelessness. Uplift Eureka and the Eureka Police Department's CSET program partner with the Betty Kwan Chinn Foundation to provide residents of Eureka who are experiencing homelessness with access to employment and housing opportunities.
