Program Description

  Child & Adolescent School & Community Based Services

Services provided through this program are delivered through contracts with community-based partners and include respite care, community empowerment efforts, single-parent family services, family services, youth services, and family outreach efforts. The program also provides for the coordination, planning, and implementation of a number of key interagency initiatives among public and private agencies in the community to meet the needs of children, youth, and their families. The cluster projects and East County Initiative helps families in crisis through a multi-agency approach, connecting them to resources for homelessness, mental health, food stamps and other social services to reduce barriers to school engagement, and supporting improved school achievement.
