Here’s how you can help

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.

Outagamie County – Low Income Seat

My name is Jason Sausser. I live in Stevens Point with my wife. We have a toddler that keeps us on the go. We are also foster parents. I am an attorney spending most of my time on Family Law. Before law school, I was in the Peace Corps and taught English in Tanzania for two years.

I want to be on CAP Services’ board because I often have clients in family law cases that are utilizing programs provided by CAP Services and I am excited to help further CAP Services’ impact on our community.
