Homelessness is not a crime . . . but ignoring it is!!  For more information call (901) 395-0964.

CAAP, Inc. began by providing counseling services for drug and alcohol dependent individuals on an outpatient basis. Since that time, it has evolved into a major provider of supportive services for those individuals that exhibit a determined need. A large segment of the targeted population that CAAP, Inc. serves would not qualify for services offered by other agencies due to the limited focus of those agencies.

CAAP, Inc. provides premium behavioral health and co-occuring mental health disorder services for those that can't afford premium costs.

Donations are

tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!
