Community Action Partnership of Northwest Montana (CAPNM) has been helping people, improving lives and strengthening communities since 1976. CAPNM is a private, non-profit Community Action Agency with the overall mission to provide services and advocacy to alleviate poverty, improve lives and strengthen our communities.
CAPNM continues to target hard to serve individuals by focusing on networking available resources and services, which promote long-term solutions for individuals to build success. Different aspects of a client’s life are addressed including housing, budgeting, medical, job training and education through networking resources, eventually leading to independence and self-sufficiency.
CAPNM serves a large geographic area of 13,375 square miles with a total population of over 150,000. Flathead, Lake, Lincoln and Sanders Counties are very rural with limited employment opportunities and low wages. CAPNM is the largest private human-services agency in the four county area, providing a wide variety of services to promote self-sufficiency and independence, which allows maximization of resources to benefit more individuals.
