The County of El Paso drafted its principal soldier in 1967, and joined Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson on this nation's historic War on Poverty!
This magnificent warrior is none other than El Paso County's own Community Action Prorgam (CAP), Project BRAVO, Inc.
In working out a winning strategy of this "War on Poverty," the approach at the local level has become a community movement and involvement. This eventually was to be called "Community Action." Each CAP is mandated to provide for the "maximun feasible participation" of the poor in its target area.
