ENCAP Director Rev. Ford, speaks on the importance of community & the need to protect it
Eastern Nebraska Community Action Partnership (ENCAP) was formed as Greater Omaha Community Action (GOCA) in 1965, to lead the Omaha area's participation in the Federal Economic Opportunity (Antipoverty) Act. Then GOCA was tasked to study and approve antipoverty projects implemented by local agencies and helped channel Federal funds to get the projects developed. GOCA later expanded into a full direct service agency.
In 2007, GOGA changed its name to Eastern Nebraska Community Partnership (ENCAP) in order to leverage the strengths of the national brand and enhance its image of serving a wider geographic area. Today, ENCAP provides a full array of services in Douglas and Sarpy Counties. Washington and Dodge Counties' eligible individuals are provided with commodity supplemental foods packages.
ENCAP has helped thousand low income residents over the past 40 years and is dedicated to continuing to fulfill the Promise of Community Action by being a strong voice for those in needs, and assisting individuals to overcome obstacles and barriers to their success.
ENCAP's hours of operation are: Monday - Friday, 8 AM-5 PM (except holidays), The facility is handicap accessible and located 2 blocks north of Ames St on 24th St. in North Omaha (next to Saratoga Elementary School).
