Shasta’s County goal for preventative services is to offer families at risk of child abuse and neglect protective intensive voluntary services to allow children to remain in their homes without court oversight, alleviating risk factors and establishing a safe, sustainable environment. Shasta has worked collaboratively with their community partners as well as contracted providers to establish new practices to address barriers with their most vulnerable population. As part of their prevention planning, Shasta created the Intensive Family Preservation Pilot (IFP)  to create pathways for families who need a secondary level of prevention with intent to expand to primary prevention. Shasta’s candidacy will focus on children and families known to the child welfare system and juvenile probation, ages 6-10 and 11-15, for youth with allegations of abuse or trauma. As part of their Theory of Change and desired outcome, Shasta’s CPP details their vision towards a reduction in open court ordered dependency cases, decreasing trauma to children children/youth which will impact their community by increasing self-resiliency in families and less dependency on formal supports and community resources.
