Community Action Partnership of Strafford County wins housing award

The Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast honored Community Action Partnership of Strafford County with its 2022 Housing Leadership Award during a ceremony last week.

The Workforce Housing Coalition annually recognizes housing leaders making a difference in the community. CAPSC was recognized for its dedication to helping people stay in their homes and off the streets, according to CAPSC Director of Community Services Dan Clark.

“It is truly an honor to receive this award and to be recognized by the coalition for the work that our team is doing,” said Clark. “Just as much of an honor, however, is to be in the position to be able to help so many people. The work we are doing is such a small part of the larger solution that is needed, but it has such a meaningful impact on people. While we wish the need for this type of support wasn’t as great as it is, we are proud to be able to help.”

The Workforce Housing Coalition honored CAPSC during its annual celebration and awards night on Dec. 1 at the One Hundred Club in Portsmouth.

During the event, Bangor Savings Bank received this year’s Business Leadership Award, the Town of Exeter was named the Municipal Leadership Award winner, the Portsmouth Housing Authority was honored with the Visionary Leadership Award, and Jay Childs was named Volunteer of the Year.

ABOUT CAPSC

Community Action Partnership of Strafford County (CAPSC) is a 501(c)(3) private, nonprofit organization established in 1965. CAPSC works with our community, state, and federal partners to assist more than 17,000 low-income children, families, and adults each year. Our mission is to “reduce barriers to help clients improve their economic stability and well-being through education, advocacy, and partnerships.”

At CAPSC, we strongly believe no one should go without having their basic needs met. As the leading anti-poverty agency in Strafford County, we strive to empower individuals and families to achieve self-sufficiency by opening the doors to resources and opportunities that offer a hand up, not a handout. When we achieve this goal, we reduce the impact of poverty and build a stronger community.
