Community Action Board of Santa Cruz County, Inc.

What is CAB? It’s been around 50 years fighting poverty and improving lives. This year, 2015, is CAB's 50th Anniversary. We begin a year full of conversations and events. CAB has six programs assisting over 9,000 low-income people with emergency, sustaining/self-sufficiency services and serves an additional 7,000+ with requests for information and referrals. Over three quarters of CAB’s clients have family incomes of less than 100% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines and at least a quarter of clients have less than 150% of the Guidelines. CAB can help and you can help too!

CAB has programs that assist low-income residents to move out of poverty focusing on four service areas.

CAB Stories

Because You Care... We Impact Lives, One Person at a Time.

Meet Aimee, she was a youth in one of our programs almost 10 years ago. She is now a community asset who mentors, guides and supports youth who struggle with poverty, gang pressures, and school challenges.





Meet Marcos

Marcos came to CAB's program, the Santa Cruz County Immigration Project (SCCIP), as an undocumented minor. Once his status began to change, his life changed. Marcos now volunteers as a docent, was involved in developing an App that won a national prize and has a clear path to furthering his education. Thank you, Marcos, for sharing your story.
