Our annual Winter Appeal is well underway. This is one of our major fund drives and as we prepare for another winter season we are once again reminded of the opportunities we’ve had over the past year to serve and work with the community in Madison County. Last year alone we served over 6,500 households reaching approximately 23% of Madison County’s citizens. We’ve seen some great changes at CAP and our new winter 2013 newsletter provides some highlights from the year. We are looking forward to yet another year of building resilient families for a more resilient community. 

Fiscally we are facing challenging times as funding cuts on the local, state, and federal governmental level are impacting us and those we serve. Some of our longstanding programs faced significant cuts. On a national level, cut in the SNAP program (formally known as food stamps) have put young families and seniors in very difficult situations. Although we have seen decreased funding, the needs in our community have not diminished. We are ever grateful for the continued loyalty of our supporters and the difference each and every donation makes to those facing often dire situations. We continue to invest in our well established programs to help develop the strengths of individuals, families, and communities. We are invested in this community. 

After three decades of service we are as committed as ever to being a vital resource, refuge and partner to our most vulnerable families and children in our community. With donations to our winter appeal we can ensure that CAP continues providing responsible and fair options for those in need and is maintained for the residents of Madison County. Please help us to continue to provide caring and compassionate service.

We invite community support! A safe, secure and paperless donation can be made online – donate now!

Thank you! Together, we can ensure a strong future for all in Madison County.
