Welcome to South Central Iowa Community Action Program
We provide a variety of programs to assist families with different needs. Our trained staff work with families to help them overcome everyday problems with food, housing, money management, education, and employment, so that they may achieve self-sufficiency.
In collaboration with community partners, the mission of South Central Iowa Community Action Program is to provide advocacy and services for persons striving for economic security while preserving their dignity and bring about change for the benefit of the people we serve and the community at large
SCICAP has three open seats on the Governing Board. We are recruiting people who receive services from our community action agency including Head Start parents who reside in Clarke, Lucas, and Monroe Counties. Persons who agree to run for election for the position have their names put on the ballot. Ballots are placed in the county outreach office as well as Head Start centers for low-income participants to vote. Ballots are cast for a one-week period. At the end of the voting period, the county outreach coordinator collects and counts the ballots. The person obtaining the most votes is elected as the representative to the SCICAP Governing Board of Directors. Please contact us if your are interested in serving on our board.
