At CAPI USA, we strive to help immigrants, refugees, and people of color connect with the resources they need to build established, happy lives since 1982. For some this may be greater food security through our food shelf; for others, it may be securing health insurance through the MNsure assistance we provide. Still, others may be in need of job skills development, training, or navigating the homebuying process. At CAPI, we’re here to eliminate the barriers and connect each person with what they need today. The system can be complicated and confusing, and we’re here to make things simple and help every individual in our community thrive
Our services are organized around three core service areas:
CAPI offers a culturally-specific food shelf, supports community gardens, and facilitates access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. We also assist with health insurance enrollment, provide immunizations, offer Hmong elder care programs, and support caregivers.
CAPI works with individuals to help them secure sustainable employment through educational and vocational training programs, job placement, and intensive case management. CAPI is also a Financial Opportunity Center offering financial education, financial coaching, homeownership programs, homestretch workshops, tax preparation, and ITIN programs.
Currently we are providing Nursing Assistant training in both of our locations: Brooklyn Park and Minneapolis.
CAPI encourages immigrants to get involved in their communities by assisting with voter registration and participation, providing leadership and civic engagement training, and promoting immigrant/refugee input into publicly financed initiatives. CAPI is also the host of the annual Twin Cities World Refugee Day celebration.
