The mission of CEAP (Community Emergency Assistance Programs) is to stabilize individuals and families in financial distress and to maximize their ability to live independently and with dignity. CEAP works to provide a holistic approach to providing resources to people in the community. They do this by offering a variety of services to their clients in order to meet their basic needs and in turn help them attain self-sufficiency. Their services operate in the areas of food support, transportation solutions, referrals, clothing, and community health. They serve Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn Center, East Champlin in Hennepin County, and all of Anoka County.
An exciting program that CEAP runs is their Farm Fresh Fest. It is a summer festival that includes produce stands, grilled hot dogs, food samples, games, musics, community resources, and more! Each event draws in hundreds of people, and is a great place to go with families. The program kicks off Friday, July 21 and will run every other Friday until the end of October.
