CEO Greetings and Welcome



Hello and welcome to our website.   My name is Michael E. Young and I serve the Maryland Community Action Partnership (MCAP) as its Executive Director.   We hope that you will find our website informative and resourceful.  MCAP is a nonprofit membership association serving Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia.   Our association advocates on behalf of low–income families to ensure their voices are heard at the local, state and national levels.  In addition MCAP supports the mission and activities of Community Action Agencies (CAAs) and our partners throughout our service areas.   This year is a defining moment of our local, state and national history.   We are celebrating 50 years of community action and fighting poverty by helping people and changing lives.
