The Blackstone Valley Community Action Program (BVCAP) is a non-profit agency and a member of the nation-wide network of Community Action Programs. Our mission is to assist low income people and empower them to become self-reliant, responsible citizens. Our programs are funded through federal, state and local grants.
Each year BVCAP serves over 12,000 families living in Pawtucket, Central Falls, Cumberland, Lincoln and Woonsocket. Our staff of over fifty people reflects the ethnic diversity of our community, enabling us to be sensitive to our clientsâ€™ culture and language, and to provide them with the best possible support.
BVCAP continues to impact the quality of life in our community by improving housing options for low income families, preparing youth and adults to be educated, productive workers, and providing jobs for over fifty people within our organization.
Many of the important services we provide would not be available in the local community without BVCAP.
