About SCICAP

Shelter & Health Assistance

SCICAP was founded in July 1965 by Clyde L. Taff with mission to provide advocacy and services for disadvantaged persons and bring about institutional change for the benefit of the people it serves and the community at large. The agency serves Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Monroe and Wayne counties in rural southern Iowa.

The agency provides a variety of programs to assist families with different needs. Everyday problems with food, housing, money management, education, and employment may seem overwhelming at times. The trained county outreach center staff work with families to help them overcome those everyday problems so that they may achieve self-sufficiency.

Clyde Taff was the first Executive Director from July 1965 to January 1st, 1995 when Jim Smith was promoted to the position of Executive Director.
