ANCHORAGE (KTUU) Rural Alaska Community Action Program or RurAL CAP is the newest member of the Channel 2 Morning Edition Breakfast Club. The organization's vision is healthy people, sustainable communities, and vibrant cultures. Some of the programs offered are safe and affordable housing for Alaska's most vulnerable adult populations.
RurAL CAP got its start more than 50 years ago and is in 55 communities around Alaska. Jan Abbott signed her team up in the spring.
"We were talking about it one morning in a staff meeting and we decided let's just do this. our agency does so many wonderful things in the state and we saw the great work that you guys were doing to highlight some other non-profits that were also doing other great work. So, we felt this would be a great opportunity for us to throw our hat in the ring," she said.
