The Child Abuse Prevention team (CAP) is a primary child abuse prevention program of CARES Northwest.CAP team presentations by physicians, nurses and counselors to babysitting-aged youth, young parents and caregivers, as well as professionals increase participants’ knowledge about protecting the safety and well being of children.
