In designing Individual Self-Sufficiency Plans (ISSP), CAPC assesses customers in 7 domain areas: housing, employment, education, health, childcare, transportation and nutrition. Using a matrix, we evaluate family risk levels with specific goals and objectives designed to help families move from “in crisis” to “thriving.”
In order to help families move along this continuum of care, CAPC provides coordinated case management services as well as financial support. The agency’s efforts focus on first stabilizing the family then coordinating goals that help customers acquire new vocational/educational skills to help eliminate barriers that have kept them from entering or advancing in the work force. CAPC’s case management includes a strategically aligned internal network of programmatic efforts, and the agency constantly identifies available external resources Social Service Advocates use to help move the agency’s customers toward self-sufficiency.

For adults, CAPC provides services including GED courses, technical/vocational training, and assistance with course fees. For children, CAPC offers eligible families to join Head Start and Early Head Start.
Head Start and Early Head Start provide comprehensive developmental services for low-income pre-school children from birth to age five and support services for their families, including services for expectant mothers such as responsive care.
The purpose of Head Start is to promote school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of health, educational, nutritional, social and other services.
CAPC’s housing and safety services enable low-income families further achieve self-sufficiency while working together with our other programs.
The Weatherization Assistance Program aims to reduce the monthly energy burden on low-income households by improving energy efficiency. The department assists customers in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Holmes, Jackson, Walton, and Washington counties.
Among many other services provided, CAPC Weatherization may address:
- Housing-repair services for qualified families
- Assistance for heating and cooling homes
- Assistance during a weather-related crisis as declared by the Department of Economic Opportunity, Florida’s Governor or the US President
The goal of CAPC’s financial services is to help low-income people, especially vulnerable populations, achieve their potential by strengthening family and other supportive systems, encouraging independent living, providing emergency services and fostering child/family development.
In order to help families to become self-sufficient, CAPC offers educational counselling regarding budgeting, balancing a checkbook, managing debt, handling mortgages and paying for educational classes.

Volunteers are also encouraged to participate as we work together to change people’s lives, to embody the spirit of hope, and to make the community a better place to live.
