Program Summary:
CAPA's mission is to prevent and treat all forms of child abuse and neglect by creating changes in individuals, families and society that strengthen relationships and promote healing. CAPA's prevention programming includes Healthy Families Jackson County (HFJC), a voluntary, home visitation program open to families in Jackson County from the time they are prenatal until children reach the age three.

HFJC uses the Healthy Families America model to provide in-depth services to families on a weekly basis. The primary goal of the program is reducing instances of abuse, maltreatment and violence against children by providing comprehensive support and education for new mothers. Research shows that the best way to prevent child abuse is by helping to facilitate safe and healthy homes for children.
