Cap Corps is a year-long service program sponsored by the Capuchin Franciscan Friars with locations in Cleveland, OH and Washington, DC. Volunteers commit to living simply in intentional community with other volunteers while working full time at their service placement. The spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi and fellowship with the Capuchin Friars are central to this experience of community and service.
