Manassas City Family Assessment and Planning Team (FAPT)
seeks Parent Representative
The 1992 General Assembly enacted the Children’s Services Act for At-Risk Youth and Families (CSA). The purpose of the legislation is to have state and local agencies, parents and private service providers’ work together to plan and provide a collaborative system of services for at-risk youth and their families that is child-centered, family-focused and community-based. Individual child/family accessibility to services funded through CSA is based on state eligibility guidelines that classify at-risk youths as mandated, targeted, and other at-risk youth. The CSA program is managed through two local teams, the Community Policy and Management Team (CPMT) and the Family Assessment and Planning Team (FAPT).  

Currently the FAPT is seeking a Parent Representative. If this is an area that you would like to serve in your community? Click On-line application to apply.
