Child Advocacy and Parental Support (CAPS) is a voluntary home-based case management service free to families with children 0-17 years of age who are not otherwise receiving preventative case management services. By connecting families with resources needed to strengthen them, as well as educating them on things such as parenting techniques, CAPS provides short term, goal oriented services to help families meet their maximum self-sufficiency potential.
