Program Description

  Child & Adolescent School & Community Based Services

This program provides for the coordination, planning, and implementation of key interagency initiatives among public and private agencies in the community to meet the needs of the children, youth, and their families.The Cluster Projects utilize cross-sector multi-agency teams and care coordination services to rapidly connect families from large school catchment areas to needed social and mental health supports to improve family stability. The East County Initiative provides care coordination services to East County residents and integrates project management of a Kresge Foundation Opportunity Ecosystem grant to advance human services, employment coaching, and other needed supports.

1  This service started in the last month of FY17, and was amplified via a Kresge grant starting in FY19. FY20 numbers were impacted by the pandemic, as the team opened up their service provision to a wider target population given community pandemic needs. As a result, while only 108 families had received "ongoing" services as of the end of FY20 (as worded in this measure); an additional 118 families received "pandemic one-time services." FY22 projection takes into account that this grant expires then; working on sustainability plan so this figure may be significantly updated in future.
2  This is a new measure implemented in FY20. Targets rebaselined based upon first year of data collection.
