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.
SCICAP empowers individuals and families with services to become self-sufficient and contribute positively to their communities.
