CAPS: Community Ambassador Program for Seniors

The Community Ambassador Program for Seniors (CAPS), through its trained volunteer ambassadors, builds capacity to serve seniors in their own communities, in their own language, within their own cultural norms, and does so where seniors live, worship, and socialize. Ambassadors serve as a bridge between the formal network of social services and their respective faith and cultural communities, and assist seniors in locating senior services and programs in the Tri City area communities.

CAPS is a unique nationally recognized, locally implemented program of City of Fremont Human Services Department (HSD), funded initially by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. It is a partnership between HSD and 10 local cultural and faith based organizations: Centerville Presbyterian Church, Muslim Support Network, Sikhs Engaged in Volunteer Activities, India Community Center, Taiwanese Community Help Association, Our Lady of Guadalupe (Latinos), and St. Anne Catholic Parish (Filipinos), Tropics Mobile Park Community, Veterans of Foreign War, and the Fremont Senior Center.
