Skyline CAP's mission is to strengthen our communities by improving the lives of those in need through actions promoting self-sufficiency. We seek to eliminate the impact of poverty by focusing on education, housing stability and economic opportunities.
Skyline CAP is the designated community action agency (CAA) providing comprehensive services for low-income families in our primary service area of Greene, Madison and Orange counties.
Our programs include:
Emergency Home Repairs - services available for owner-occupied dwellings in need of basic health and safety repairs, including plumbing, electrical, safety and accessibility (wheelchair ramps). Priority is given to seniors and persons with disabilities. This program is funded solely through donations and grants from private foundations.

Head Start - a free preschool program for 3- and 4-year-old children from income-eligible families that help prepare them for kindergarten by helping them develop cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically in a positive learning environment. The program is also designed to provide services to the families to improve their capacity to be self-sufficient.
Healthy Families - a nationally accredited home visitation program assisting families and their children from birth to age 5. Core values embrace positive parenting, improving childhood outcomes, and increasing family self-sufficiency. Healthy Families is a particularly good fit for parents with multiple stressors, such as single parenthood, limited income, limited experience or knowledge about infant and child development, personal history of abuse, neglect or adverse childhood experiences, personal trauma and/or issues related to substance abuse, mental health or domestic violence.
Project Discovery - educational outreach program for public school students in Madison and Orange counties providing resources and opportunities to explore options for life after high school.
Rental Assistance - rental properties in Madison and Greene counties that are offered to low-income families. These properties provide safe, stable, and affordable housing to help put families on the path to self-sufficiency. Skyline CAP also administers the housing choice voucher program in partnership with Virginia Housing and has HUD-certified counselors on staff to provide rental counseling.
If you share our vision that all people within the Skyline CAP service area will have access to education, housing, economic opportunities and services necessary to become self-sufficient, we invite you to support us by making a donation through Give Local Piedmont. You may designate your donation to one or more of the programs listed above or to the general fund.
