What We Do


Family Development

Family Development mentors are available to meet with individuals or families on a one-on-one basis. These trained volunteers provide confidential help to people in areas such as resume building, job searches, and budgeting. Mentors are aware of many resources in Saratoga County, and can be a great support to people who are going through a difficult time.

We also offer our Getting Ahead program, which helps people stabilize their situations and build resources to improve their lives.  Click here for more information on Getting Ahead.

For more information on our Family Development program, please contact our Family Development and Getting Ahead Program Manager by calling 518-371-1185 or emailing bonnie@captaincares.org

Bike Works

Bike Works provides bicycles to residents throughout Saratoga County who are willing to invest some time to learn the basics of bike safety and bike maintenance. With the help of the Stewart’s Corporation, CAPTAIN CHS provides new or lightly-used bicycles to deserving individuals for recreation, transportation, and as a means of promoting a healthy lifestyle. With a focus on education and developing a commitment to biking, CAPTAIN CHS staff and community volunteers teach bike safety, maintenance, and repair to area youth throughout the year.
