Community Action Partnership of Mercer County (CAPMC) has been helping the
County’s poor since 1966. We run several low income programs such as,
Weatherization, Consumer, Employment Programs, Caps and low income housing.
However, we were finding that there were people we couldn’t help, because they
did not fall into any of the categories for which we received funding. People such
as the family whose water heater needed replaced, but they barely had enough
income to cover basic living expenses; an older woman who needed a prescription
filled but was not eligible for Pace; a family who needed their car repaired in
order for the husband to start a job.
To respond to these people, we started a program in 1990 called Silent Partner.
We ask people like you to join this effort. Your commitment involves allowing us to
call you when we have a case we can’t help using the normal resources available;
You are our last resort.
You control how often we can call you. You control how much you are willing to
help. And you can always say no when we call. When you agree to help with a case
we will immediately assist the client and use the money you send to reimburse the
Silent Partner Account. That’s all there is to it.
This is not a contribution to a general fund or a capital campaign. It is direct help
to a specific family. Please review the enclosed contract. If you are willing to
help, complete it and mail it back to us. We are available to answer any questions
you may have. Thank you for your consideration.
