Humboldt County’s Comprehensive Prevention Plan (CPP) offers a client-centered 3×5 approach focusing on providing services within the three levels of prevention to five target populations while moving investments from high-end focused treatment interventions for high-risk populations, toward more upstream selective and preventive strategies. Out of ten well-supported practices, Humboldt County has selected to provide Nurse Family Partnership and Motivational Interviewing. Humboldt County’s CPP encompasses the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services Racial Equity Strategic Plan to supports diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout its branches. The CPP seeks to improve countywide capacity to deliver culturally and linguistically competent services by collaborating to ensure agencies, programs and services reflect the cultural, racial, ethnic, and linguistic populations they serve. The CPP highlights their commitment to engage the diverse tribal populations throughout the county as cross-sector collaborative partners during the planning and implementation of the CPP. The CPP intends to facilitate access to and increase utilization of appropriate services and community supports throughout the county to reduce disparities. As such, Humboldt County has opted to implement a community pathway composed of an established network of 16 Family Resource Centers, three tribes and the Humboldt County Transition Age Youth Collaboration, located at 17 sites throughout the county. The 20 sites are committed to the goals of FFPSA – keeping families out of CWS and children out of foster care. Read the Humboldt Comprehensive Prevention Plan.
