Serving Cache County and the Bear Lake area, CAPSA is a nonprofit organization providing support services for women, men, and children impacted by abuse. These services are free and confidential. With the support of the community and trained professionals, the organization champions women in the workplace and the community.

How CAPSA Champions Women 

CAPSA recognizes the importance of women in the workplace, especially when engaging with those impacted by domestic violence, human trafficking, and sexual violence. Providing excellent, confidential, and comprehensive care happens when employees are well-balanced. With the importance of healthy staff a priority to the company, CAPSA offers its employees flex hours, compressed work weeks, and onsite child care.

The organization offers compressed work weeks (four 10-hour shifts) that allow employees to have a day off midweek or a long weekend to balance work and their personal lives. CAPSA also encourages flex hours to let staff come in late or leave early.

Additionally, it provides onsite childcare, with flexible hours, run by trauma-informed staff. This results in children getting the support they need by receiving care centered around emotional wellness, compassion, and empathy.

Why Supporting Women Is Important to CAPSA

CAPSA’s mission statement is “We imagine a world with empowered survivors, safe homes, and children living without fear.” That dedication to creating a safer world for everyone isn’t just directed at the survivors they support, but its staff who help support, build, and nurture the company’s goal. By supporting its employees, the company creates safer, happier, healthier communities.
