MNCAPD was founded in 2014 by two physically disabled East African Americans residing in Minnesota. They recognized the need for services in their community that addressed language, cultural and social barriers and facilitated access to care, resources and opportunities that empowered them. MNCAPD wants to address the diverse needs of adults and children with physical and mental disabilities for day to day living assistance. We recognize the need for services in the community and know we need to address the wide cultural gap in the disabled community.
