Children's Services Act (CSA)

The Children's Services Act (CSA) is a 1993 Virginia law designed to help troubled youth and their families. State and local agencies, parents and private providers work together to plan and provide services. In each community, local teams decide how to do this.

The Family Assessment and Planning Team (FAPT) looks at the strengths and needs of individual youth and families, recommends what services to provide, and prepares a service plan for each family. The Community Policy and Management Team (CPMT) coordinates agency efforts, manages the available funds, and sees that eligible youth and their families get help. Both teams include parents, staff from community services boards, court service units, the department of health and social services, the schools, and private service providers.
