Computers Assisting People, aka CAP Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit Cleveland Ohio corporation.

Long before the term "digital divide" became ubiquitous, CAP volunteers were working to bring the life-changing power of technology to all the people of Cleveland and beyond.

Earlier in the year the CAP website was shit down by a DDOS attack.  Now, finally, we are back online with a somewhat rudimentary html website (as opposed to our fancy WordPress site)
