Nevada County Child Welfare Continues Operating At Full Capacity

Nevada County Child Welfare continues to operate at full capacity to ensure that children and families are safe during this precarious time. Child Welfare has modified its practices to ensure that whenever possible our clients and social workers are practicing physical distancing while adhering to our State and Federal mandates to keep children safe and support families. Child Welfare workers are utilizing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) while working in the field and have added additional services related to the COVID 19 outbreak. Child Welfare continues to investigate allegations of child abuse and neglect, broker appropriate services, and manage all of our Court ordered cases. We strongly encourage anyone, mandated reporter or community members, to report suspected child abuse/neglect by calling our 24-hour emergency line at 530-273-4291 and submit an electronic suspected child abuse/neglect form if you are a mandated reporter by going to https://www.mynevadacounty.com/1063/Suspected-Child-Abuse-Reports and following the instructions provided.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and Nevada County Child Welfare Services believes that every child has the right to a safe childhood, free of abuse and neglect. April, Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month is an important time to continue and enhance the conversation in our communities about how we can keep our children safe. Child abuse and neglect is 100% preventable. Nevada County Child Welfare Services focuses not only on child safety, but believes that recognition and prevention include promoting healthy parenting and strong families through education and community support. By rallying our neighbors, business, schools, friends, and families, we as a community can make a difference in the lives of children in Nevada County. By promoting safety, awareness, and dialogue, we can prevent child abuse from ever happening.

Nevada County Child Welfare Services did well on the California Child and Family Services Reviews (C-CSFR) Outcomes for the most recent quarter of data. The C-CSFR was formed to improve outcomes of children in the Child Welfare System while keeping state and county agencies accountable for the effects of Child Welfare involvement on families. There are seven Federal Outcomes and four State Outcomes that have Standards by which counties are measured. The Outcomes evaluate statistics related to the safety, permanency, and well-being of children involved with Child Welfare Services. Nevada County exceeded the Outcome Standards for nine out of the eleven Outcomes in the most recent quarter. To learn more about these Outcome go to California Child Welfare Indicators Project Website at https://ccwip.berkeley.edu.
