What is FCAP?

FCAP (Foster Care Assessment Program) is a statewide contracted program available to children in all six DSHS regions. The purpose of FCAP is to provide consultation and assessment of a child's level of functioning in the home, school and community and to assist with the service planning and implementation. The goals are to improve the child's health and well being, and help DCYF accomplish permanency.

The Foster Care Assessment Program is operated under a contract with the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Childrens Administration to serve children and youth.

This program is administered by Harborview Center for Sexual Assault and Traumatic Stress (HCSATS), in collaboration with community and hospital partners statewide.
