CAPS COVID-19 Update

We are here for you and we care!

We are still accepting new clients who are eligible for our services.  

During the COVID-19 emergency, CAPS will continue to offer most services through telehealth.   This requires that you have a device with a stable internet connection and webcam, as well as the ability to hold sessions in a private location while you are alone.  If you do not have the appropriate technology, we can conduct telehealth by phone, although video conference is preferred.  We will work with you to find a safe and appropriate way to connect.
