Social Services and Family Centers
EBCAP operates 3 Family Centers which provide access to wide array of support services. A Family Advocate will partner with each individual/family to complete a comprehensive assessment with the goal of helping clients to achieve self-sufficiency. The holistic assessment will help each individual/family identify their strengths, needs, and goals; and help them identify potential community resources and linkages.
