CHAP- Creating Hope by Assisting Parents

The CHAP program is designed to improve parental effectiveness by providing a clear set of positive parenting skills and strategies that can be used immediately to address a variety of child-rearing challenges and problems.

CHAP is available in Montgomery County and Bedford County (for Hispanic families only). Our skilled professional counselors stand beside the parents leading them through the maze of child rearing by transforming their experiences, doubts and fears into the knowledge and confidence they need to build positive discipline, communication and self-esteem.

A CHAP counselor will help recognize and assist the parent with a plan to reduce everyday stressors such as financial worries, changes in family structure, isolation and/or lack of transportation.
