CAP Services currently has an opening on its Board of Directors. We invite you to cast a vote or write in another eligible candidate name.


CAP Services, Inc. has been on the front-line of the war on poverty since 1966. CAP, a private,
non-profit corporation, offers programs in Portage, Outagamie, Marquette, Waupaca, and Waushara counties. CAP Services is headquartered in Stevens Point, Wisconsin; with offices in each of the five counties it serves.

When President Lyndon Johnson began the “War on Poverty” in 1964 his goal was to provide the opportunity for every American to enjoy the benefits of the nation’s “Great Society.” As part of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, a network of local organizations, known as Community Action Agencies, have pioneered programs which have lifted millions out of the shadow of poverty by “giving a hand, not a handout.” Each of these organizations has policy-making boards, at least one-third of which must be democratically elected representatives of the low-income community.Your Content Goes Here

Outagamie County – Low Income Seat

My name is Donna Schmitz and I graduated from Liberty University in 2008 with my Master’s degree in Professional Counseling. Then I was licensed by the state of Wisconsin in 2010. I currently work full-time with Ascension Health in the capacity of an Employee Assistance Program Counselor.
My experience in working with the poor and underserved population includes both volunteering as a case manager & serving on the Board of Directors with the Freedom House in Green Bay. I also provided mentorship to unwed mothers and fostered at-risk teen girls through Outagamie County Foster Care Program.
Working with the poor stems from my own experience growing up in poverty coupled with a strong desire to help people improve their circumstances.
