Community Action Partnership
CAP stands for Community Action Partnership, and they are one of Scott’s incredible friends. We’re lucky to have them as a part of the community, and they offer opportunities for people to share their time and talents with others. With a food shelf, thrift store, and senior nutrition programs, there are many ways to contribute. Click the link below to sign up on the CAP website.
Southern Valley Alliance
Southern Valley Alliance is a non-profit dedicated to providing survivors of domestic violence with support, resources, referrals, and advocacy. They serve both Dakota and Scott County and are located in Belle Plaine. Volunteers go through a comprehensive training program, and they are always looking for new recruits to help them meet their mission.
Let's Go Fishing
The local chapter of Let’s Go Fishing is all about enriching the lives of individuals through fishing and boating excursions, and Scott’s sure glad we have them all hands on deck as a part of our community. Participants can sit back and relax with some vitamin D, or swing a pole into the water and see what they catch.
