What is CAPC?

The Nipissing District Community Action Program for children is for young women 13 to 22 years who are pregnant or who have a child(ren) under 6 years of age. The purpose of this program is to help women who wish to:

  • Learn about pregnancy
  • Learn how to improve their health and that of their unborn child
  • Have someone to talk to
  • Learn about child development and parenting
  • Further their education

Our Goals

The Community Action Program for Children will:

  • Help the young pregnant woman or mother identify her needs and the needs of her child(ren).
  • Provide information, support and links with agencies in the community.
  • Develop a plan of activities to encourage the pregnant woman or mother to meet her goals.
  • Provide opportunities for the young mother to meet other mothers with similar concerns.
  • Assist the young mother to plan, solve problems and encourage her child(ren)’s healthy development.

CAPC works with other agencies in the Nipissing District to help young mothers find the services they need and assist them in participating in programs. CAPC workers have varied backgrounds in health, education, social work, plus experience with children and young adults. Bilingual staff is available for francophone families.
