Community Assessment, Planning, and Evaluation (CAPE)
CAPE is situated in the Alameda County Public Health Department and serves both Public Health and Alameda County Health Care Services Agency programs and partners.
Everyone in Alameda County, no matter where you live, how much money you make, or the color of your skin, has a healthy, fulfilling, and productive life.
