People come first at East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP). We are a private, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. We are mission-driven. When a resident walks through our doors, we get to know them personally. Then, we connect them with the right services, at the right time.
The services we offer help make sure everyone can reach their full potential. This may mean solving immediate challenges, like access to food or housing. Or, it may mean getting and staying healthy for life. There’s medical and dental care, behavioral health care, human services and community programs. We help children, youth, families, adults and elders. EBCAP has over 20 services. And all from one place!
