About Us

Welcome to Community Action Partnership of Madera CountySchool Aged Girl (CAPMC)

Community Action Partnership of Madera County (CAPMC) is a public non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Since it was incorporated in 1965, CAPMC has been making a positive difference in our county. CAPMC is committed to improving the social well-being and economic capacity of low to moderate-income individuals and families, as well as providing opportunities to achieve economic independence.
For the past five decades, CAPMC has been the voice and catalyst of empowerment and opportunity to the “at risk” and “invisible” population living in our communities.

CAPMC focuses its resources on goal-oriented interventions as opposed to one-time assistance. While we do assist those in need of emergency shelter or help paying a utility bill, our true purpose is to end poverty in Madera County by:

  • Offering services that provide families with a safe and healthy environment;
  • Challenging individuals to achieve positive results toward personal and collective prosperity; and
  • Promoting personal growth and independence.

As Madera County’s anti-poverty agency, CAPMC serves the low and moderate income residents annually through its broad spectrum of programs and resources. With over 50 years of service and with many anti-poverty programs, CAPMC is a key contributor to the vitality of Madera County. Our services respond to community needs in the following ways:

  1. Crisis Intervention
  2. Child Development Resources
  3. Financial Assistance
  4. Shelter
  5. Transportation

CAPMC is a leader in “helping people, changing lives.” We have received local and national recognition for implementing creative, cost-effective programs to serve the low and moderate income residents of Madera, Mariposa, and Fresno counties. As the region continues to grow and change, CAPMC is also transforming itself to best serve those in need by continuing to examine its current programs to ensure that they meet the highest levels of efficiency and effectiveness. Agency leaders regularly seek to initiate innovative programs that complement and broaden our existing ones, and search for best practices from other agencies in our community action network. CAPMC continues to maintain the financial integrity of its programs to maximize resources to the greatest benefit of its program participants, other customers, and stakeholders.

Since its inception in 1965, CAPMC’s mission and vision have driven the Agency’s anti-poverty efforts:
