When it was founded in 1975, CAPA ran a crisis and information hotline, but quickly expanded to include treatment programs for survivors of child abuse. Today it serves children and families with three levels of programming?education, family support, and counseling services?all designed to prevent and treat child abuse. The programs help strengthen family relationships through problem solving and communication-based activities, and reinforce self-esteem through educational presentations. Art therapy, play therapy, and individual counseling are all available for children who have experienced trauma or been abused, and a women's empowerment group provides enrichment for adult survivors of abuse.
