Tulare County’s vision is “every child safe by having every community engaged and invested.” The collaborative mission of the Tulare County community is to provide support and services that are equitable, inclusive, and easy to access by the community. Prevention Services in Tulare County are compassionate and focused on increasing the safety and well-being of children and youth so they can safely stay at home, within their communities. The target populations prioritized in the CPP include but are not limited to youth that are disproportionately represented in the foster care system; youth living in underserved areas, including rural communities; and youth that meet 3 or more of the criteria that qualify them as FFPSA candidates. Their prevention service array includes expansion of Nurse Family Partnership and Healthy Families America and the implementation of Family Check Up, which will serve youth involved in child welfare and juvenile probation as well as pregnant and parenting foster youth. The inclusion of Tribal and community pathways ensures that youth and families in all communities within Tulare County will have access to services and supports.
