HOW TO USE THIS SITE

Please become familiar with the Parent Handouts. They are the backbone of this project. They are broken down by category; within each handout, you will find a description of the social service agency and a phone number. You may also find a link to the agency’s web site that you can access and learn more about that agency. You can easily print any parent handout by clicking on the handout and choosing “print” from your web browser. Your selected parent handout will be sent to your printer in a custom printer-friendly format.

For providers, download these parent handouts and give them to the families that you have identified that are in need of a particular service. After you distribute the handout, document which handout you gave so that you can get feedback at the next encounter.

For families, please use the information provided by the parent handouts, and email us with any problems or successes.

On our website, you will also find links to other agencies that also have comprehensive advocacy information for families. Also, we will feature various social service organizations every month.

There are also various Resources, Laws and Definitions that pertain to families, sample advocacy letters as well as a downloadable CAP poster and PDA.

Join our Mailing List, so that we may let you know when new services are available.

Please use the CAP4Kids.org website frequently, and let us know how we can make this resource as useful as possible.
