The Foster Care Assessment Program (FCAP) is a statewide program contracted by the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) for dependent children. FCAP provides consultations and assessments for the most complex cases in the child welfare system. FCAP provides brief phone consultations as well as standard and comprehensive assessments with the objective of assisting DCYF in achieving permanency for children and youth. The program identifies and resolves barriers to permanency and identifies evidence-based interventions to improve functioning. Referrals are made directly to Harborview by the DCYF social service specialist.
