Welcome to Schenectady Community Action Program's (SCAP) website! I'm glad you've taken the time to learn more about us!
Schenectady Community Action Program is committed to alleviating the symptoms and eradicating the causes of poverty by helping people help themselves when they are in economic, social, or educational need. We do this by identifying changing community needs and mobilizing resources, administrating programs to address ongoing community needs and individual and systemic advocacy on behalf of those SCAP serves.
SCAP's beginning dates back to 1964 and the signing of the Economic Opportunity Act by President Lyndon B. Johnson. Since that time, SCAP has been serving low income individuals and families in Schenectady County and surrounding communities.
SCAP is committed to continuous quality improvement and uses the latest data available to determine appropriate methodologies that have the greatest possibility of helping people to help themselves. SCAP is strengthened by its diverse staff and customers as well as the opinions and experiences of those who participate in our programs and services. SCAP's staff is highly committed and experienced with a commitment to providing caring, supportive and responsible services to those in need.
