CHaD Social Work Team - provides a dedicated group of social workers for counseling, family services, discharge planning and social welfare support.

Child Advocacy and Protection Program (CAPP) - evaluates and manages child maltreatment, including consultations for physical abuse, sexual abuse and medical neglect.

Molly's Place - provides families with resources, education, and community connections in a respectful, culturally sensitive, and comfortable manner in the CHaD Outpatient Center.
