CAPP

Offers a range of services to address the issues surrounding teen pregnancy, HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections.Our staff works with teens ages 10-21 primarily in Buffalo's East Side to improve access to health care and to reduce risky sexual behaviors and teen pregnancy.

Our goals are to:
  • Promote healthy sexual behaviors.
  • Ensure access to healthcare and family planning services.
  • Expand opportunities and provide support for youth.
  • Develop a coordinated plan for a community effort to improve the local environment for young people.

EDUCATION IS KEY

We facilitate educational programs in neighborhoods where there is the greatest health and socio-economic burden using a multi-dimensional model including:
  • Small group, evidence-based education in such diverse sites as faith-based organizations, schools, group homes, and community centers.
  • Mentoring for teens and their parents to help them access appropriate health care resources.
  • Youth development activities including; summer employment, educational workshops, and community service.
  • Programs to help youth understand risk-taking behaviors.

  • Community collaborations to help youth learn and grow.
