We are a coalition of churches, nonprofits & local government coordinating efforts to reduce poverty in Silicon Valley

The Need

While we celebrate Silicon Valley as the hub of trillion dollar companies, there are pockets of deep poverty in our midst.

The 90th percentile earn over

$384,000/yr

The 10th percentile earn less than

$32,000/yr

Hundreds

of thousands

of households who do not earn enough to meet basic needs without assistance

60,000

households

live under Extremely Low Income (ELI) conditions and are caught in a vicious cycle of poverty

6.7%

of the population

cannot weather a job loss or medical crisis and are often one car accident, bill or illness away from homelessness

The Solution

Equipping a movement

CAP-SV aims to equip churches for collaborative, place-based ministries in poverty pockets around Silicon Valley.

Maximizing impact

With churches focusing on a specific community and nonprofits focusing on their specific services, poverty alleviation can be more coordinated, impactful and relational.

Building relationships

While meeting material needs is critical, we believe that building authentic human relationships is at the center of breaking the cycle of poverty

Our Focus

Education
