MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

MESSAGE FROM THE CEO Ekta Prakash

I

n 2018, guided by a strategic imperative to make our services increasingly accessible to diverse immigrant populations, CAPI opened the 2-story 10,692 square foot Immigrant Opportunity Center (located at 5930 Brooklyn Boulevard in Brooklyn Center). The center is accessible to a growing immigrant population living in Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, and the North Minneapolis area. It is a multi-service community center that is welcoming and supportive to refugees, immigrants and U.S.born communities in need. 95% of participants are people of color. We are commited to creating a vibrant community where there are opportunities for social, economic, and civic engagement. Today, the organization is operating from two multi-service community centers in Brooklyn Center and in Minneapolis. The agency’s 30 staff and 250+ volunteers directly impacted more than 6,000 diverse people living primarily in Hennepin County and North West Suburban-Brooklyn Center through three core program areas: Basic Needs, Economic Empowerment and Civic Engagement. We continue to work toward our vision of providing integrated services, accessible to all, and truly believe in strong partnerships, that will bring together a strong continuum of integrated programs and make our services increasingly accessible to Hennepin County immigrants, refugees and U.S.-born communities in need. Looking toward the future, CAPI’s strategies and investment are geared towards increasing public benefit access assistance and enrollment, workforce development, financial empowerment services and civic participation. On behalf of CAPI’s Board of Directors and staff, I’d like to thank the many volunteers, partnering organizations, and funders who supported our work in 2018 and beyond. Sincerely, Ekta Prakash

Thank you for your continued support.

OUR IMPACT

THE YEAR IN REVIEW BASIC NEEDS

FOOD AND NUTRITION SERVICES CAPI offers a culturally-specific client choice food shelf, provides access to community gardens, holds evidence-based nutrition and cooking classes, and facilitates enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

HIGHLIGHTS §§ An average of 618 food insecure households received nutritious food each month from CAPI's client choice food shelf §§ A total of 172 heads of households were screened for federal programs and provided information and referrals for economic support services including the Minnesota Food Help Line and employment services §§ 1318 referrals were made to CAPI internal services such as voter education, employment, and other resources §§ 7 fresh produce distributions were facilitated, serving an average of 103 households per distribution; overall a total of 57,651 pounds of produce were distributed §§ CAPI assigned 107 gardening plots (of varying sizes) to 100 households in 7 gardens §§ Toys for Tots: 165 households (with 458 children) were served in CAPI’s Toys for Tots distribution

ON A BUSY FEBRUARY afternoon, an unfamiliar face appeared in the food shelf. After conversing with the participant, his situation was quickly brought to light. He was recently unemployed, his SNAP benefits had run out a few days prior, and he had three grandchildren staying with him while their mom was in the hospital. Though he did not outrightly say he was stressed and worried, his voice was strained while completing his intake forms. He spoke of his family, his previous job and his immigration story. He mentioned that he tried to go to multiple food shelves before finding CAPI, but they would not take him without an appointment.

While in the food shelf, he only took one or two of each item, out of grace, even when told he could take more. He was excited to discover CAPI had extra Toys for Tots that he was able to take home to his grandchildren. After his visit to the food shelf, staff were able to connect him directly with other CAPI resources. He went on to sign up and complete the Hand Soldering job training program through CAPI’s Career Pathways. He graduated the program in May of 2019. He still visits the food shelf as needed, but continues to serve as an example of the power CAPI’s wraparound services can have in making a difference in someone’s life.

Newly designed Food shelf!

ONE OF CAPI’S FOOD SHELF CLIENTS RECENTLY LOST HER JOB DUE TO THE PROGRESSION OF an illness. Additionally, her husband was disabled and unable work. She was struggling to find a job which caused her extreme stress about making ends meet and providing for her family. CAPI was able to screen her for the Supplement Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) during a visit to the food shelf as well as discuss the benefits of participating in the program. With the help of CAPI’s Food and Nutrition Coordinator, she enrolled in SNAP and after a monthly follow up, she reported that she was receiving a significantly higher amount of cash assistance which allowed her to have her basic needs met. She expressed relief and gratitude for CAPI’s assistance in connecting her to further support as well as staff members for taking the time to provide her with multiple services in one visit, saving her a trip to the county.

OUR IMPACT

COMMUNITY GARDENING Many of CAPI’s gardeners attended the focus groups that were conducted with St. Catherine’s University. These focus groups provided a platform for CAPI gardeners to talk about gardening, stress, and adaptation to the United States. It’s easy to understand, even just by these quotes, how important gardening is to CAPI gardeners. Below are some quotes that were gathered from these focus groups, though client name and identifying information has been kept confidential.

“I want to garden because it is good for me… it makes me sweaty and tired which makes me sleep well. It is good for my blood pressure… it makes me very happy. There are days when I am worried but when I go see my garden, my worries would go away.”

"One example (of how gardening helps me) is my husband passed away. I really miss him. Sitting around makes me miss him. When I go to the bedroom, I miss him. When I see the spoon and plate, I would miss him and cry. Then I go to my garden to go check on my vegetables and take care of them and before long it would be dark and I would forget to cry.”

“If there wasn’t a garden for me there will be no way for me to forget my worries… it’ll help me live longer. I am scared that one day I won’t be able to garden, how will I continue to live?”

CAPI's Senior Advocates are Helping Ms. Vang

M

s. Vang is a 69-year-old Hmong widow. She is currently living alone in Minneapolis Public Housing. She called CAPI's Senior Advocate to ask about documents she received from the Hennepin County Human Services, because she was unable to read them. CAPI’s Senior Advocate was able to visit Ms. Vang in her home due to inaccessibility to transportation. The Senior Advocate explained that the documents she received consisted of a renewal form that she was required to complete with supporting documents in order to maintain her SNAP Benefits. However, she was unaware of her eligibility to receive a Special Diets benefit. With the help of the Senior Advocate’s support, Ms. Vang was approved for the Special Diets benefit.

Community Garden

Access the Healthy Food She Needs Ms. Vang expressed that she now has the freedom to purchase healthy foods such as fresh vegetables and fruits, which had normally been too expensive for her throughout the month. She expressed her gratitude to the Senior Advocate and stated that he was very helpful in supporting her through each step of the process until the end and having a passion for helping the elderly.

OUR IMPACT

HMONG SENIORS & CAREGIVER SUPPORT The Hmong Seniors and Caregiver Support provides cultural and linguistically appropriate community support services to encourage independent living for elderly Hmong seniors. CAPI works with caregivers who provide care for their elderly relatives (grandparents, parents, and other members of their extended family), serving as a resource as they confront the economic, social, and medical difficulties often associated with caring for their loved ones. Thai Vang, along with seniors at Minehaha Park

HIGHLIGHTS §§ CAPI Hmong Seniors and Caregiver Support provided comprehensive support to 78 Hmong seniors and 93 adult caregivers §§ CAPI currently has an average of 7 volunteers matched with seniors with a total of 3 seniors per volunteer. The program connected seniors and caregivers to culturally appropriate services

H.V. WAS A YOUNG CLIENT WHO CAME FROM Laos. She and her elderly husband had two small kids and were living in public housing. H.V. was feeling unhappy about her living situation and was unsure of what to do. When she learned about the CAPI Caregiver Support Program and its additional services, she enrolled her husband in the program. CAPI staff also assisted H.V. in exploring home buying options and mortgage loans, and connected her to a realtor to assist her with the home searching process. Within just two months, H.V. was successfully approved for a mortgage loan and she bought a house in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Her family is now living happily in their newly purchased home and thanked CAPI for our wonderful services. 10

SHOUA VUE IS A WIDOW OF 76 AND CURRENTLY LIVING IN MINNEAPOLIS Public Housing. Ms. Vue mainly relied on her daughter to take her to see the doctor, go grocery shopping, and complete applications to apply or maintain her benefits in the past. Ms. Vue stated that it was difficult for both herself and her daughter, because her daughter did not always have the resources to help her in a timely manner. Since participating in the Hmong Seniors program at CAPI, Ms. Vue now has regular and accessible transportation to see her doctor, access the bank, and get to grocery stores when needed. She also receives various types of support from the Hmong Seniors program such as monthly food delivery from CAPI Food Shelf, senior gardening, home visits to help her pay bills and complete her applications or renewal forms, as well as regular socialization with other seniors in monthly activities. Ms. Vue stated that her living conditions have greatly improved and now she can enjoy her daily activities at home and in the community.


MNSURE ENROLLMENT SERVICES CAPI HAS WORKED WITH CLIENTS whose families are new to the US and seeking health insurance. In CAPI’s work with clients and their families, staff have been able to give them the tools to navigate medical bills and utilize health insurance networks independently.

Without this opportunity, many immigrant health care users are often confused on how health care works in the US. They are often uninsured or dealing with stifling medical bills. By taking the process a step beyond simply signing a client up for health insurance through MNsure, CAPI has equipped clients with navigation skills that will follow them throughout their lives.

CAPI’s MNsure outreach and enrollment services provide information on health insurance and assists people to navigate and obtain health coverage.

HIGHLIGHTS §§ CAPI’s 6 certified Navigators provided personal assistance to refugees, immigrants, and U.S.-born communities in need, resulting in a total of 271 enrollments in a health plan (i.e., MA, MNCare or QHP) §§ CAPI served as the lead agency of a 3-agency collaboration involving the Karen Organization of Minnesota and Vietnamese Social Services §§ CAPI screened and assisted 751 people with questions related to health insurance application and enrollment

ONE OF CAPI’S JOB TRAINING STUDENTS MOVED TO Minnesota as a recent immigrant with his family. CAPI staff coordinated around the holistic needs of this client and connected him with a MNsure navigator on site at CAPI’s building in Brooklyn Center. Through this he was able to receive health insurance for himself and his family, so that he can feel more at ease with his employment priorities. In addition to just obtaining health insurance, CAPI was also able to help him navigate the health care system in general. It can be confusing enough for people born in the United States, but for a new immigrant family navigating provider networks, health care bills, insurance paperwork, etc. can be very challenging. CAPI was able to provide these other services to better equip the family to navigate the health care system in the US going forward.

OUR IMPACT

THE YEAR IN REVIEW ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

CAPI's career development programs and wealth building services help individuals secure sustainable career pathways via certificate and credential training, job placement, and wealth building support services such as free tax preparation clinics.

HIGHLIGHTS §§ In 2018, CAPI’s career development programs (MFIP, Refugee Employment, and Career Pathways) served 636 individuals §§ 228 people secured or maintained employment. Average annual increase in wages was $14,329 §§ 85 individuals were placed in training of which 40 received credentials/certificates and 20 earned an industry recognized credential §§ 146 participated in general job search and workshops §§ Through CAPI’s wealth building services, 182 received free VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) services generating $390,707 in returns to the community. The tax services were facilitated by 20 VITA volunteers in partnership with CLUES

Realizing A Dream to Care for Others

P

eace Evuiroro was born in Nigeria in 1990. She is married and lives with her husband and their ten-month-old son in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Peace immigrated to the U.S. in October 2017 after she received a family re-unification visa process through her husband. Peace is a very dedicated and passionate woman. While in Nigeria, she got her bachelor’s degree in Public Administration. However, Peace had been dreaming to be a nurse ever since she was a child. Helping and providing care to others are some of the things that are valuable and precious to her. When Peace and her family arrived in the U.S., they found life to be very challenging. Peace was unable to find a decent-paying job with her profession and so she stayed home without a job for a long time. This created a great deal of stress for her. In November 2018, Peace walked into CAPI’s Immigrant Opportunity Center seeking training opportunities. Peace explained that she was referred to CAPI through a good friend of hers who had received free Certified Nursing Assistant/CNA training from CAPI in the past. Her friend currently works as a nursing Assistant at North Memorial Hospital.

I am happy that I am able to support my family with my own income.” Peace got enrolled in CAPI’s Certified Nursing Assistant Training Program through a partnership with OSSEO ABE and Hennepin Technical College. Despite being a new mother to a ten-month-old, she managed to attend the entire duration of training sessions—both the prep classes as well as the nursing assistant classes and clinical provided by Hennepin Technical College. She successfully completed the program and passed the State exam, earning her title of Certified Nursing Assistant. In April 2019, Peace was hired by North Memorial Hospital as a Nurse Assistant. She is very excited and grateful to get such of an opportunity. She hopes to pursue her LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) soon. She says, “I am happy that I am able to support my family with my own income.” She remembered how she had previously suffered from stress as a result of staying home without a job. She believes these difficult times are gone now and said she is grateful to all the community-based non-profit originations in Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center-“especially CAPI USA, who offer these great opportunities to individuals like me in order to be successful.”

MFIP Employment Counselors Help Participants Reach Their Goals

M

anana is a hardworking, single mother of two boys ages one and six. She is a participant in CAPI’s Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) and began working with her MFIP Employment Counselor, Huda Tiba, in August of 2018. When she came to CAPI, Manana had received MFIP benefits on and off for several years but continued to benefit from having access to monthly cash and food assistance to support her family. Two of her initial goals were to find new housing for her family and purchase a new car. At the time she created her first employment plan at CAPI, she was working full time for Lancer, a food service company and thinking about going back to school. When their primary activity is employment, MFIP participants can continue to receive ongoing support from their Employment Counselor in the form of career counseling, case management, and coordination of benefits. They can also access resources and referrals only available to individuals receiving MFIP such as additional financial support

services funded by the program. One common example of MFIP support services is a monthly bus or gas card to help cover the cost of transportation to and from work. The MFIP program limits eligibility to 60 lifetime months but when Manana reached her 60th month, she was working full time and therefore eligible to continue receiving MFIP benefits under a working extension.

Manana continued working with CAPI and because of her determination and work ethic she was recently able to save up enough money to purchase a reliable vehicle, accomplishing one of her initial goals. Recently, Manana’s initial goal of finding new housing became unexpectedly urgent when the cousin she

OUR IMPACT

ON ELECTION DAY, CAPI staff members spent all day calling communities within the metro to remind them to get to the polls before 8pm. Only a few hours before polls closed, one of CAPI’s staff spoke with a woman who had not yet voted. She expressed a strong desire to get out and vote but did not have a car to get to her polling location. She was a Karenni woman who spoke no English but was genuinely excited at the prospect of having her voice heard through voting. We were able to connect her with a Karenni speaker through one of CAPI’s grantee partners. CAPI’s grantee partner was able to take down the voter’s address and communicate it to CAPI’s staff. Two staff members picked the woman up from her home and took her to vote. She successfully made it to the polls and cast her ballot. She was so happy and grateful that CAPI had taken the time to help her vote. CAPI staff were overwhelmed by her gratitude and described the whole experience as very emotional.

You Lee and Kristina, voter outreach

DURING ONE OF CAPI’S PHONE BANKS, A CAPI STAFFER SPOKE with an elderly man who lived in North Minneapolis. The man indicated that he had voted in previous elections, but did not think he could vote in this year’s midterm election because he recently had a stroke and was unable to get to his polling location. The man was most comfortable speaking in Hmong and since CAPI conducts phonebanks with multilingual speakers, CAPI was able to connect him to a Hmong-speaking staff member. The staff member spent close to half an hour on the phone explaining various ways in which the man could still vote. He expressed interest in the option of curbside voting in which he could pull a car up to the polling place and have the ballot delivered to the car. CAPI staff arranged transportation and translation assistance for him, and later went to pick him up and drive him to a Minneapolis early curbside voting location. The man expressed his deep appreciation for CAPI’s efforts to help him overcome several barriers to exercising his right to vote.

DURING NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION DAY, A CAPI STAFFER WAS out registering people to vote in Minneapolis. She came across an AfricanAmerican man who said he could not vote because of his past felony. She explained to him that if he had completed all parts of his felony sentence he was eligible to vote again. He had completed his sentence over 20 years ago and had not been aware that he was able to vote. Our staffer registered him and he remarked how he hadn’t voted in over 20 years since his felony conviction. He was overjoyed at the prospect of being able to vote again.

JOHN VUE Opportunity Navigator "I learned more in 6 months with CAPI than I learned with my previous company of 13 years. I’ve always thought that I am naturally good with people - and then CAPI came along and showed me a whole different level of communicating and listening - that I am still implementing to better myself and the community I serve. With all the negativity in our media, it’s welcoming to see CAPI and other non-profit organizations banding together to make a positive impact." From Left to Right: John Vue, Lexi Kleinschmidt, Mulki Nur. Not pictured: Will Lucker

LEXI KLEINSCHMIDT Special Projects Coordinator "My experience with CAPI has been immensely important to my career development and in just the few months I have been here, I have gained skills in event planning, project management, systems development, and multiple more that will play a vital role in making sure I am an asset to future teams I am on. I am so thankful that I got to do all this learning with this organization and community – CAPI could not push me harder while also giving me crazy support, and the clients we serve are so willing to connect, give their own insight, and very much appreciate the work CAPI does."

WILL LUCKER

MULKI NUR

Opportunity Navigator "I am happy working as a Navigator at CAPI. Working one-on-one with people looking to build or, in some cases, rebuild their lives here in Minnesota has given me the opportunity to continue to serve my community, even when I am not in uniform."

Food and Health Systems Specialist "My most cherished moments at CAPI definitely happened in the food shelf. The relationship we have with our clients and the jokes we are able to make even when we do not share a common language. I think my experience here has reaffirmed one of my long standing beliefs that as people we tend to focus too narrowly on our differences, that too often we forget about the many similarities we have – especially across cultures." 19
