Kim Cable, Housing and Community Services Director


“Creating Opportunities, Changing Lives” is a statement that speaks loudly to me. More than ever, we find ourselves facing immense challenges and new possibilities.


As a kid, growing up on a small farm in rural Wisconsin, I knew that we were poor, but I also knew that the possibilities were endless for me. I was afforded opportunities for growth and development, which could lead me in any direction I wanted to go. My family promised me I could go to college, get a good job, and achieve “the American Dream”.


For all too many, this is a broken promise. On any given night in the United States, over 700,000 people are homeless. As our country struggles and the economy has crumbled, those numbers are on the rise. In the course of recovery, and as the nation mends its economy, we must not leave our most vulnerable behind.


I believe strongly that every person, regardless of their situation, is deserving of a roof over their head at night and food to eat. My work at Couleecap is driven by my passion and beliefs of equal opportunity for everyone.


Kim has worked for Couleecap since 2005. Prior to that she worked providing supports to individuals with disabilities and/or mental health issues. She has a strong background in program development and management.
