The San Mateo County Comprehensive Prevention Plan (CPP) affirms the county’s commitment to keeping children and families together and preventing the need for foster care whenever possible and pursuing opportunities to leverage federal Title IV-E and state Family First Prevention Services Block Grant funding, along with other resources, to expand the availability of prevention services within the County. The San Mateo County CPP focuses on all 12 candidacy populations and identifies four main pillars of challenge within the county: Racial disparities in poverty and child welfare system involvement, Mental health and substance abuse challenges, Increased rates of sexual abuse allegations and identified victims of exploitation and Increasing severity of maltreatment and vulnerability of young children. The CPP outlines San Mateo County’s plan to address these four pillars. San Mateo County will implement the following EBPs as part of their CPP: Healthy Families America, Motivational Interviewing (Substance Abuse/Cross-Cutting), Nurse-Family Partnership, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy and Parents as Teachers.
