The Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc. (RurAL CAP) was founded in 1965 to improve the quality of life for low-income Alaskans. Over the past five decades since, the lives of thousands of Alaskans have changed for the better because of community action and the people and programs of RurAL CAP. Our Alaska Story highlights individuals and families who speak about how they were empowered to have a better life through Supportive Housing, Head Start, Weatherization and AmeriCorps.
