Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention, Intervention and Treatment (CAPIT) Program
The Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention, Intervention and Treatment (CAPIT) Program services help to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect.
To achieve this, the CAPIT Program provides a range of prevention, intervention and treatment services for both families who are currently working with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and to families in the community who are at-risk of abuse and/or neglect.
The array of services are designed to strengthen family unity, nurture the development of healthy behaviors, improve parental resilience, reinforce knowledge of parenting and child development, create social connections, develop concrete supports in times of need, and increase the social/emotional competence of children.
The CAPIT program provides the following services:
- Individual, Couples, Family and Group Counseling
- Case Management and Resource Linkage
- Certified Parenting Education
- Fatherhood Groups
Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Counseling services are provided on weekdays and evenings, and are scheduled based on the participant’s need.
