Due to concern for the health and safety of our staff, the community we serve, and our partners, CAPI will largely be closed to the public. Our staff will be working from home beginning March 18, 2020, until further notice. We will be monitoring this developing situation, and making sure our community is informed about any changes that may occur along the way. Below please find a list of staff, services, and updated hours/information for our food shelf. Staff will be checking voicemail, emails, and having calls forwarded. If you’re not sure who to call, please call the CAPI main line at 612-767-3670.

We look forward to serving you in this time of uncertainty. And, remember, we are here for you even if we are at a distance.
