The agency formerly known as the Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency announced Monday that it has changed its name to Community Action Programs Cayuga/Seneca.
“We are excited to go back to a name that is known in our community as a force in the fight to end poverty,” CAP Executive Director Laurie Piccolo said in a news release. “CAP is a nod to the early days of our agency and the movement to develop community programs designed to empower people to live, learn and work with dignity and equal opportunity. CAP’s commitment to providing a hand up to those seeking assistance to achieve and sustain economic security is just as strong today as it was in 1965. The name change allows the agency to simplify our mission, vision and values to the community, our partners and to those seeking our services.”
Along with the new name, the rebranding effort will also include a new logo embodying the spirit of community action, as well as a new website, caphelps.org. Services will continue uninterrupted, CAP said in the release, and new and expanded programs are slated to launch soon.
