Somerset Community Action Program, Inc. (SCAP) was established in 1965 as one of the first few community action programs nationwide set to implement the Economic Opportunities Act. From its inception, the leadership of SCAP was motivated by progressivism with a strong commitment to community participation in the decision-making process and in shaping the programs and institutions that were set up to serve them.


In collaboration with our partners, Somerset Community Action Program will increase the self-sufficiency of low-moderate income individuals and families in the Somerset County Community by empowering them through education, employment training, cultural enrichment, case management, and life skills development programs.

SCAP focuses its’ efforts on assisting families reach their full potential by providing them with supportive services designed to assist them with reaching a healthy level of self-reliance. In addition to being a licensed child care center, SCAP is also Somerset County’s designated Community Action Program and is funded to provide anti-poverty activities driven by a community assessment of needs.
