In our 23 years of providing social services, we discovered the Life Skills Training we offer has a far greater impact on the lives of those attending our seminars than just providing them with financial assistance for 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 have found that most of those who successfully completed our Life Skills Training Classes did not end up before a judge again, and they have become less dependent on government / social service agencies.
