DISCUSSION:

The Child Welfare Services (CWS) Outcome lmprovement Project (OIP) allocation (Letter
attached) will be utilized to assist in a Child Welfare Services Systems lmprovement Project
structure called "Differential Response". Differential Response is an effective means of family
engagement and child abuselneglect prevention and intervention. Families are connected to
Differential Response Services through either Path 1 (no risk to low risk of child abuse or neglect)
or Path 2 (low risk to moderate risk of child abuse or neglect) and receive culturally sensitive
services in their own communities that may prevent further involvement from the child welfare
system.

The Community Services Agency (CSA) has implemented a Family Resource Center model of
Differential Response in Stanislaus County because such centers are community-based and
familiar with their geographic region and the needs of the persons who reside there. The CSA
plans to use the CWS OIP allocation for expansion of Differential Response to Turlock
(95380195382 zip codes), Modesto (95350195355 zip codes) and North ModestolSalida
(95356195368 zip codes), not presently served by the Family Resource Center model of
Differential Response. These new Differential Response Services are estimated to serve
approximately 1,500 at-risk children per year.

In closing Fiscal Year 2005-2006, the Community Services Agency (CSA) was allowed to roll
forward $350,000 in surplus one time realignment growth funds to Fiscal Year2006-2007, for use
to expand Family Resource CenterslDifferential Response Services to cover the entire Stanislaus
County. On September 15,2006 the CSA received notification from the California Department of
Social Services that $503,829 was being awarded to CSA for a funding request submitted to
provide "Differential Response, Expansion to Uncovered Areas". Since this allocation is available
to pay for these services through June 30,2007, the CSA is requesting permission to roll forward
$350,000 to Fiscal Year 2007-2008 in order to continue funding Differential Response Expansion
Services through June 30,2008.

POLICY ISSUE:

Approval of this allocation will allow the Community Services Agency to provide services needed
to preserve and strengthen families and to reduce child abuse. These services will meet the
Board's priorities of a healthy community, effective partnerships and efficient delivery of public
services.

STAFFING IMPACT:

There is no staffing impact associated with this item.
