CAPSC’s Mission and Vision

Founded in 1965, CAPSC is the sole provider in Strafford County to offer a full suite of programs and services designed to have a measurable impact on the health and welfare of at-risk children, seniors, and people experiencing low incomes.

Without the services provided by our agency, many local residents would be without a means to provide for their basic needs, including food, education, child care, utilities assistance, transportation, housing, emergency shelter and access to other services.

Domestic Violence Housing Support

Whether currently in crisis or in preparation for a safer future, survivors can work with our staff to prevent homelessness, find shelter, apply for housing opportunities, and connect with local crisis centers and additional resources.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence and needs housing, we can help. Our aim is to help survivors feel safe, to prevent and minimize the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness, and to support self-sufficiency.
