Coalition Against Poverty in Suffolk
The Coalition Against Poverty in Suffolk serves individuals experiencing a financial crisis resulting in an inability to pay a bill in full or homelessness. The Night Stay program (currently in its ninth season) will be held at the Salvation Army building in downtown Suffolk the month of January, and churches will rotate hosting during February and March. CAPS has four staff members - Mary Sue Rawls (Director), Jan Pruden (Services and Night Stay Administrator), Angela Beale (Services Administrator), and Hannah Shelton (Temporary Services Assistant). These staff members total about 100 hours a week assisting callers with their needs and maintaining operations. Tim and Kim Bowden serve as Vice President and Treasurer of our Executive Board, respectively. CAPS currently has 27 churches in its membership, and is always networking to onboard other Suffolk churches. We now have over thirty people who support CAPS financially as well on an individual basis.
