On Thursday, October 25, the Intergenerational Community Alliances & Programs Inc. (aka ICAP INC.)  was surrounded by friends, faith and community representatives and sponsors introduced its mission to the public.

The event was held at Independence LIVE located at 1919 Market Street, with food catered by Aramark. 

The attendees were provided information by sponsors Independence, Common Practice, FunTimes Magazine, Gift of LIFE Donor Program, Stith & Associates Health Insurances, Always Best Care Senior Services, Boomers R Heroes, Native Dawn Associates and Dubose Business & Printing Services.  “The launch provided a quality atmosphere to confirm our image as one of excellence in service to the faith and community organizations” said Sandra Lawrence, CEO & founder.

ICAP INC. has three areas of focus, which are Palliative and Hospice awareness and education; the African American Heritage Program and BAV Girl Phenomena Inc.  Two collaborations were birthed at the event which further emphasizes they are sincere and serious about service.

As a part of the Palliative and Hospice education component, they will be the collaborative partners for the Philadelphia and vicinity to facilitate the Hello Conversation Game about living and dying. “We will provide workshops and seminars to encourage and educate people to make quality life care decisions to avoid crisis for caregivers and loved ones during the end of life stage. 

The Hello game helps to more comfortably discuss living and dying issues.  Common Practice manufactures and created the game. ICAP INC. will be the primary lead in introducing this game in the Philly area,” said Jethro Heiko, CEO of Common Practice, the manufacturer and creator. 

The second collaboration is with Boomers R’ Heroes a Philadelphia caregiver support group. “Caregivers are often invisible to the public, but generally are the ones who need to assist loved ones in making right life decisions.  Knowledge is the key to proving better care to our loved ones.  ICAP INC. will provide the Hello Game and additional resources to learn more about life planning from legal to funeral planning and all in between,” said Jean Kirkley, founder.

The second specialty focus is the African American Heritage Program (AAHP) created and directed by Jacqueline Wiggins, retired educator and a respected and noted Black historian. “There is so much history from pre-enslavement to present that is not taught in our school system. 

Using the faith community and community organizations as a gateway to educate all ages about the many contributions made by African Americans and others of African descent to the Philadelphia and vicinity,” Wiggins said. AAHP will include a docent/tour guide curriculum for interested persons.

Thirdly, the BAV Girl Phenomena Inc, is a self and life esteem program to support young and life seasoned women.  This includes discussing and evaluating abstinence and celibacy in order to build healthy self and other relationships. For some, it is a healing process and others a learning tool including health, spirituality, physical and mental wellness information.

ICAP INC. is well tuned with a strong support and advisory team. “Each member of the board of directors and the advisory committee are diverse in their specialty to support the goals and objectives of this organization,”  said Elder Gregory Johnson, pastor of the Metropolitan Baptist Church and vice-moderator of the Pennsylvania Eastern Keystone Baptist Association and ICAP board president.
