Comprehensive Adolescent Program
CAP’s main goal is to provide psycho-educational and support services to court involved or at risk juveniles and their families. The goal of CAP is to reduce recidivism and problematic behaviors while maintaining the juvenile in the community. Grant funding is provided by the New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission (JJC). CAP services are free to juveniles and their families in need of grant funded programs.
