Capital Area Partnership Uplifting People, Inc. combats the problems associated with poverty in Richmond, Petersburg, Hopewell, Prince George and Dinwiddie.  We care about the entire community and are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other. 

CAPUP is a private, non-profit community action agency that was established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to combat problems associated with poverty in the Richmond metropolitan area. CAPUP serves two primary functions:

1. It acts as a bridge between poverty areas of surrounding cities, counties and social service agencies;

2. It develops and institutes new and innovative projects to meet the needs of community residents and provides them with resources to help themselves.
