We’re a close-knit group. Which is how we keep people from falling through the cracks.

The agencies and experts in our collaborative share an understanding that the best way to protect and support youth and families is to make sure there are no gaps in the safety net.

So we employ the talents and techniques of everyone from public health officials and sheriffs, to schools and human services. And we all share a single mission:

We offer an effective, collaborative and comprehensive

 system of social, educational and health services

 to strengthen and support families.

 Our vision of working together to help families thrive serves a single purpose:

We’re here to provide prevention strategies

 plus early and significant intervention into

 the issues facing children, adolescents and families.
