The Community Assessment Program

The Community Assessment Program (CAP) strives to keep youth at home and out of juvenile justice and human services systems by connecting families with supportive services to promote safe, healthy and happy kids. Young people receive early intervention screening and assessment to identify factors contributing to concerning behavior and factors mitigating risks. Referrals are accepted from parents and professionals. 

CAP’s Comprehensive Assessment includes: screening for immediate medical needs; behavioral health screening (including mental health and substance use); assessment of risks, strengths and needs; case planning and short-term case management.
