In our 23 years of providing social services, we've discovered the Life Skills Training we offer has a far greater impact on the lives of those attending our seminars than just providing financial assistance for their various needs!

The Graham County Probation Department contracted CHAP to conduct 3 Life Skills Training Seminars (10 sessions each Seminar) to a group of individuals on probation. They found that most of those who successfully completed our Life Skills Training Classes didn't end up before a judge again, and they've become less dependent on government social services and welfare agencies!
