Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) is an evidence-based home
visitation case-management model for mothers who abuse alcohol or
drugs during pregnancy. Its goals are to help mothers build
healthy families and prevent future births of children exposed
prenatally to alcohol and drugs.


PCAP Approach

Pregnant and parenting women are enrolled in PCAP
for 3 years.
PCAP forms partnerships with and between clients and families and
community service providers.

Like the flowers in bloom this spring, PCAP continues
to blossom and thrive as a team as we nurture the clients we
serve. We look forward to an upcoming season of growth and
expansion for our program! FESS has continued to partner with local
organizations to provide fresh food, hygiene products and
various household items to families in need. PCAP also received a
beautiful donation of fresh flower bouquets for Mother’s
Day–a generous gift that case managers were happy to
distribute amongst their clients and community. If you know of
people in need of resources or fresh vegetables, please be sure to
have them contact FESS!
