The Cancer Assistance Program (CAP) is a volunteer driven organization
The Cancer Assistance Program (CAP) is dependent primarily upon volunteers for program planning, fund development and all aspects of service delivery as well as organizational governance.
Through the engagement of volunteers CAP is able to keep its costs low, comparative to organizations that rely primarily upon paid staff. The programs and services offered address the social, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of individuals with cancer and their support network.
By contributing their time to CAP, volunteers are able to spend their days in a rewarding manner. They meet and work along-side of an incredible team of men and women who also volunteer their time and, more importantly, make a difference in the lives of individuals and families affected by cancer.
