Located in Fremont, CA, The Community Ambassador Program for Seniors (CAPS) is a nationally recognized, locally implemented program of the City of Fremont Human Services, originally funded by a two year grant (2007-09) from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
The Community Ambassador Program for Seniors, through its volunteer community ambassadors, builds capacity to serve seniors in their own communities, in their own language, within their own cultural norms, and does so where seniors live, worship, socialize, and learn. The Ambassadors serve as a bridge between the formal network of social services and faith based and cultural communities. Visit each partner’s page to learn more about them.
As of October 2012, there are 85 trained CAPS ambassadors.
