General Information
Description of ServiceFor over 25 years the Student Assistance Program has worked in Pennsylvania to help troubled students. In some situations we are a first line of support for students dealing with any family, drug & alcohol, sadness, peer drama, or bullying issues. We support students in school, but we also connect students and families to outside resources to help them negotiate some of life’s most tumultuous storms.

HCP provides Student Assistance Program trained liaisons that serve in all of the middle and high schools in Franklin and Fulton County. Liaisons provide one-on-one student screenings for mental health and substance abuse concerns, group sessions with a variety of themes, and SAP Team consultation within each school.

Elementary SAP- This program works directly with elementary students and families in Chambersburg School District and St Thomas Elementary in Tuscarora SD to assist in matching students and families with various needs and concerns and to reduce the barriers to learning at the elementary level.
