We believe that a livable, vibrant, and economically robust Downtown must reflect our shared values, which means we take an active role in social issues and support our Downtown service organizations that serve those in need.
Our priorities include:
Addressing Homelessness: A 2019 Community Guide
In 2019, CAP initiated the first stages of an educational campaign intended to educate the public about the current state of homelessness in the city, the work being done by service providers and stakeholders, and tactics the general public can employ to become part of the solution to making homelessness brief, rare, and nonrecurring. Advance copies of "Addressing Homelessness: A 2019 Community Guide" were made available at CAP's Town Hall meeting on July 24, 2019.
