In Pennsylvania, every school must have a Student Assistance Program (SAP). Our SAP team is comprised of school and community agency staff. We are here to help you access school and community services.
If your child is having trouble in or out of school, we can help you. There may be times when you just don’t know how to help your child. That’s okay; someone else may know how to help.
Don’t feel embarrassed or uncomfortable about asking for help. When extra help is needed, knowing how and where to find help can be overwhelming.
Anyone can make a referral to our SAP Team. All referrals are confidential. Click here to make an online referral.
