CLAP was formed due to the lack of equity, resources, and representation for marginalized Sacramento communities.
We provide community reach-ups, viable resource links, black hygiene living supplies, and community connection for Sacramento.

There are several ways for anyone to connect to CLAP below or under the "Contact us" Tab

CLAP has always been about uplifting our Sacramento youth and families. If there is a family that needs support please share the summer resources below. CLAP also has a Community Corner on this site with other community led supports.
We invite community led programs and services to contact us here at CLAP so we can add them to our resource database.
In 2023 CLAP will continue to do Reach Ups! These outreaches aren't hand-outs but hand-ups for the Sacramento community struggles. CLAP services are led or created with the input of the community most impacted. No one left behind!!
