Sussex County CAP Program Joins Center for Prevention and Counseling

April 5, 2013 at 9:25 PM

Barbara Adolphe, Executive Director of the Center for Prevention and Counseling, announces the addition of the Sussex County Child Assault Prevention program into the Center’s array of services

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. In New Jersey, in order to emphasize the important role of families, Governor Chris Christie is proclaiming the month, “Child Abuse and Awareness Month: Family Strengthening 2013.” As such, the New Jersey Child Assault Prevention (NJ CAP) program is proud to announce that it has been strengthening children and families for over 27 years by providing educational and prevention programs in our schools statewide.
With a motto “All Children Deserve to be Safe, Strong and Free”, the CAP program seeks to reduce children’s vulnerability to abuse, neglect and bullying by providing comprehensive prevention workshops in the schools for children, parents/guardians and school staff.  Since its inception, NJ CAP has trained over 3 million children and adults in its life saving strategies. NJ CAP programs are available to every community in our state.
Effective April 1st, the Sussex County CAP program has a new home as it becomes one of the programs offered by CFPC. “Being able to promote this effective child assault prevention initiative fits perfectly into CFPC’s mission,” says Adolphe. The agency’s mission is to promote hope, health and recovery among all people by fostering a community in which individuals and families thrive. Helping children to be safe and strong has always been a part of CFPC’s work through such programs as Girls Circle, Boys Council, 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, Mentoring Plus and Above the Influence.  “The addition of Sussex County CAP to our array of evidence-based services further enhances our mission and expands our reach into all Sussex County communities. We are proud to embrace CAP into our family,” Adolphe says.  According to Dodi Schultz, Coordinator of Sussex County CAP, “The CAP facilitators and I are looking forward to this new collaboration. By coming together in this way, we will be able to do more to meet our obligation to do right by the next generation.”
