Allegheny County Community Programs

ACCP is Allegheny Family Network’s (AFN) in-house, non-clinical support program.

ACCP Supports Families in The Following Ways:


  • Guide your family as you navigate Education, Mental Health, Juvenile Justice, and other child-serving systems.


  • Collaborate with your current service providers to assist in planning the best course of action for your family.


  • Assist families with information on how to meet their basic life needs, such as, budgeting, medical care, training, education, employment, and recreation.


  • Aide the family in identifying and building their natural sources of support, including family members, friends, neighbors, or others.


  • Support families using strength-based principles: Family Support Partners help families in identifying their strengths and then using and building on these strengths - meet their needs.


How Do I Get Referred to This Program?


  • You can ask your Service Coordinator about making a referral to Allegheny Family Network for a Family Support Partner.


  • If you don’t currently have a Service Coordinator, you can call the AFN ChatLine and ask to be referred to an AFN Family Support Partner for your family.


What Happens After the Referral?


  • After we receive the referral for your family, we contact you and provide your family with a Family Support Partner within 24 to 48 hours.


  • The Family Support Partner will talk to you regarding what you would like to accomplish for your family.
