Starting a Site

A successful PCAP site:

  • Maintains the theoretical foundations and implements the core components of the basic PCAP model.
  • Reflects the unique characteristics of the community it serves.

The goal is to help the client move along a continuum from dependence on the case manager, to interdependence with the case manager, to independence and strength on their own.
