CAP annually serves over 3000 clients through the following programs:
- Healthy Families: Home-based services to support expectant families and new parents with the changes and needs that often come with the birth of a new child. Services are voluntary and free and include helping families access community resources, educating families on parenting and child development, connecting families with medical providers, and assessing children for developmental delays.
- Early Head Start: Voluntary home visiting services to expectant and new parents with children under age three with the objective of improving school readiness skills.
- Kinship Care: Supports grandparents, other relatives, and even family friends who are caring for children. A home visitor assists caregivers to find the support necessary to make a successful transition for children into their home and family
- Family & Youth: Family Action Support Workers work with DSS referred families to keep children safe and healthy and to reduce or eliminate the risks of out-of-home placement for children. Our Youth Mentors meet weekly with youth (ages 8 to 15) to provide a supportive and trusting relationship, help children gain new experiences, and lay the ground work for social and academic success.
- Supportive Services: TANF Facilitators offer assistance to families in need with a wide variety of services including assistance for utility, heat and rent, budgeting, employment, transportation, and referral to community and government services. Housing Facilitators assist families who are homeless or at high-risk of becoming homeless with temporary rental and utility assistance, finding suitable housing, financial counseling, and home visiting case management.
