Community Action Partnership Strategic Plan
The San Diego County Community Action Partnership (CAP) Strategic Plan serves as 5-year roadmap for the department, highlighting goals that support both the local vision ( Live Well San Diego) and the County of San Diego Strategic Plan, as well as the National Community Action Network Goals.
Vision: Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
Mission: Empower economically disadvantaged individuals and families, including newly arriving refugees, to achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency and well-being.
