Community Access for Prevention Activities (CAPA)

 

CAPA (Community Access to Prevention Activities), serving the East San Jose community, aims to prevent child abuse before it begins. To reach its goals, CAPA relies on culturally and linguistically sensitive counseling as it assists families who are at risk of abuse. CAPA is a community-based violence preventing program, which offers education outreach, workshops, and support groups specifically designed for underserved and marginalized families.

Workshops:

Goal:
ARCC conducts sessions with small groups at schools and community based organizations. Workshops are solution oriented and provide parents with knowledge and skills to initiate change in their parenting techniques. Workshops held in Spanish and English.

 

Groups:

Goal:
