APRIL eNews:
CAP Continues its Work on Behalf of
Children & Families
CAP Update, April 2, 2020
Dear Friends of CAP,
First, I hope you are all feeling well and staying safe.

Now more than ever, families need support and children in foster care need permanency and certainty. I am responding to the needs of our community families through development of quality, virtual services to navigate this time of crisis.
In addition to supporting staff, I am engaged in seeking funding through grant writing with the assistance of Jaclyn Rugg, our new office operations manager. -->

CAP is still operating directly with families despite our office being closed and staff working from home. I want to take the time to share the hard work of our dedicated staff. Questions or concerns? Please call me at (585) 978-4268.

Thank you for your continued support,
Lauri McKnight, CAP executive director
