Colusa County has engaged multiple partners in the development of the CPP based on a well-established Children’s Multidisciplinary Team. Colusa County is well positioned to further develop collaborative partnerships that will increase and strengthen the county’s ability to access prevention services. Colusa County’s demographic data indicate there is a large population of Hispanic youth and Spanish speakers and Colusa County is committed to ensuring bilingual staff are available to provide services in the appropriate language.
Colusa County has selected two evidence-based practices (EBPs), Motivational Interviewing as a cross-cutting approach and Parents As Teachers. Recognizing the importance of sustainability, Colusa County will leverage other funding such as Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP), California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs), and American-Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars to enhance services and meet the county’s prevention needs.
