CAPA provides school-based safety and character development education programs for children in elementary and middle schools.

Contact April Fletcher-Clark firstname.lastname@example.org

Parenting programs are available to all members of the community who care for children whether they be parents, grandparents, foster parents, or caregivers. The Positive Parenting Program, also known as Triple P, is a science-based approach to parenting that has been used for over 25 years. Participants receive workbooks and take part in activities and role-playing opportunities to increase their knowledge of positive parenting. The class meets weekly and a full session is eight classes. There is a $25 per session. CAPA’s parent support group, affectionately named PS We Love You, meets every other week and is a safe place where parents can discuss their feelings and frustrations while fellowshipping with others. A modified version is offered in the Beaufort County Detention Center. After release, parents are encouraged to complete the full program. Contact April Fletcher-Clark firstname.lastname@example.org
