Community Advancement Program

The Community Advancement Program (CAP) aims to actively engage individuals and families in wrap-around case management services with the goal of assisting those in need of social support and community resources. Staff members can assist individuals ages 18-35 with connecting  to programs, services, and information that will help them overcome barriers and challenges. The CAP also aims to increase community engagement by facilitating community events, workshops, trainings, and activities.

The MFNH also provides financial assistance for rent and utilities. In order to determine eligibility, please call our office to set up an in-person appointment to complete the necessary paperwork and application information.
