Community Ambassador Program for Seniors

Community Ambassador Program for Seniors (CAPS)
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 City of Fremont. CAPS is a unique, nationally-recognized, locally-implemented program of the Human Services Department (HSD) and has been funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
