Central Alberta Poverty Reduction Alliance, or CAPRA, is a group of people and organizations who work collaboratively to find local solutions and make a real difference on poverty. We have over 45 members and hundreds of community supporters advocating for social change that will improve opportunities for people experiencing poverty.
How we work
We work at the strategic level, taking a big-picture, long-term approach to have a collective, permanent impact on poverty.
Our job is to:
Identify needs, advocate and influence policy
Advocate, promote and support poverty reduction programs and services
Educate the community about poverty related issues
We do have action committees focused on issues such as transportation, food security, literacy, financial literacy and living wage that undertake initiatives to educate and impact the community.
