Organization Founded

In 1974, the Community Advancement Program (CAP Special Education) was formed due to the deinstitutionalization of the Department of Youth Services (DYS). CAP’s programs included outreach and tracking and foster care for DYS-involved youth. First located at 14 Beacon Street in Boston, CAP then established “storefronts” in South Boston, Dorchester, Roxbury, and Charlestown, mostly within Boys and Girls Clubs.
