CAP Services welcomes the public to an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22, at its new location at 2900 Hoover Road in Stevens Point.
Visitors to the open house will be able to tour the building; enjoy food and refreshments with CAP staff, Board members and special guests; and learn more about CAP’s work to transform people and communities to advance social and economic justice.
“Clients have complimented the improved privacy and professional environment of our new building,” said Mary Patoka, CAP’s President & CEO. “We’re excited to have our partners, supporters, neighbors and the local community visit.”
The building – formerly the First Law building – is located just south of Herrschners on Hoover Road in Stevens Point. CAP purchased the building late last year and moved staff there mid-June. The location houses the corporate and early childhood education administrative staff previously located on Highway 10 East, as well as business and auto lending staff previously located on West River Drive. With the move, CAP’s Highway 10 E office is now closed. CAP’s West River Drive offices remain open and house a variety of additional program staff.
Patoka said donations from local businesses have been instrumental in putting the open house event together. Donations include Point Premium Root Beer from the Stevens Point Brewery; pulled pork sandwiches from People’s Meat Market; appetizers from Infinity Foods; and tent rental and other items from Wood Street Rental Center.
“We appreciate the generosity of all of the local businesses that support the work that we do, including those who are helping with this event,” said Patoka.
The building purchase was largely financed through the sale of property, but CAP is also in the public phase of a $300,000 capital campaign to fill the funding gap. People interested in making a tax-deductible financial gift can visit capservices.org/hoover for more information on how to donate. CAP will conclude the campaign at the end of the calendar year but will continue to accept donations until the goal is met. A temporary capital campaign donor recognition plaque will be on display during the open house event, made permanent once the campaign closes.
