MOCAP of Muskegon - Helping People Help Themselves and Each Other

What do you know about MOCAP?  It's really a cool acronym for Muskegon Oceana Community Action Partnership and the mission is simple.  They help people find the resources they need when it comes to housing, medical and food assistance.  They work tirelessly to help keep people in the area in their home, fed and taken care of the best they can while also providing training for them so hopefully, they can avoid the pitfalls of life.

People come up on emergency situations and MOCAP is there to help them.  From the Michigan Energy Assistance Program, to Community Service Block Grants, emergency food and shelter, and more.  MOCAP is a non profit working to make life better for our area and empowering individuals to live independently.  They do remarkable work.

"MOCAP is one of 29 Community Action Partnerships in the state of MI.

Since their inception as part of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, CAPs have helped low-income Americans escape poverty and achieve economic security. Through programs such as housing, food banks, energy assistance, and financial education, CAPs tailor their services to meet the needs of the individuals and communities they serve. They put a human face on poverty, advocate for those who don’t have a voice, and provide opportunities."

They would like to get to know you a little better!  MOCAP is hosting a community block party at their location June 4th!  There will be lots of things to do and see and even more importantly, learn about and see if you can use a hand, or maybe you can lend a hand to help their work.  Either way, get to know MOCAP because you might never know if you or someone could benefit from their help someday!  I had a chance to talk to Todd Rasmussen and Lakisha Churchwell about the work at MOCAP and the party coming up.  Take a listen to the video below!

Great people doing great things to make sure no one is left behind in Muskegon.  We have a network of people in town who give freely of time and talent to make sure everyone can call Muskegon home and know that their friends and neighbors are behind them!  That's community building!
