From Exile to Resettlement is excited to introduce CAPI, a local non-profit organization that is a community supporter of this project.
All refugees and immigrants lead successful lives and exercise fully their civic rights and responsibilities.
To guide refugees and immigrants in the journey toward self-determination and social equality.
CAPI, founded in 1982, is a community-based direct human service implementer of anti-poverty programs. CAPI strives to help refugees and immigrants gain access to jobs, housing, food, health education, and youth and senior social services to promote economic independence and self-determination to 3,000 African and Asian refugees and immigrants, annually. Over 95% of our participants are living at or twice below the federally designated poverty level. While historically known as a social service agency, CAPI has transformed and integrated a social change agenda into its core programs to make lasting impacts in its community. In this new strategic direction our primary constituents—refugees and immigrants—guide us to deliver societal change while we fight poverty and health disparities in our community. CAPI's mission is to guide refugees and immigrants on their journey toward self-determination and social equality.
