Vacancies on CPMT / FAPT Teams

The Community Policy and Management Team (CPMT) for Spotsylvania County, which oversees local activities under the Children’s Services Act (CSA,) is seeking a private provider representative to volunteer to serve on CPMT.

The Children’s Services Act was passed in 1992 with the intent to "create a collaborative system of services and funding that is child-centered, family-focused and community-based when addressing the strengths and needs of troubled and at-risk youth and their families in the Commonwealth.” For additional information about CSA in Virginia, please refer to the State CSA web site at www.csa.virginia.gov.
