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.

March is
here and spring is in the air! Spring has long symbolized a time
for new beginnings, growth and the nurturing of life. With
that in mind, PCAP would like to challenge service providers to
partake in acts of self-care this month. Whether it is
spending time outside as the weather warms,
enjoying time with loved ones or trying a new hobby, we
encourage you all to do something that nurtures your soul so that
you in turn can provide better nourishment and support to the
families you serve. You must care for yourself before you can
care for others. 




Pinwheels of Hope is not your ordinary fundraiser.
Participants will work to find unique pinwheel locations,
participate in challenges and answer trivia questions. With a
tri-county region (Thurston, Mason & Lewis Counties) as your
game board, you will have the whole month of April to complete as
many activities as possible, earning points along the way.
