RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Novation Contract #74-249-21 with Catholic Charities CYO of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, a non-profit corporation, in an amount not to exceed $527,493, to provide Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS) for Seriously Emotionally Disturbed (SED) children at its St. Vincent’s School for Boys for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, which includes a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $263,747.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $527,493 and will be funded by 50% Federal Medi-Cal ($263,746.50) and 50% Mental Health Realignment ($263,746.50) revenues. (Rate increase)

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, there will be fewer residential facilities to provide residential and outpatient program for seriously emotionally disturbed youth.




BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of County’s population in that it provides day treatment and TBS services to SED children to reduce the need for hospitalization and/or other higher levels of care. Expected program outcomes include an increase in positive social and emotional development as measured by the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale (CAFAS).  
  
The County has contracted with this contractor for such services since 2005. Most recently on August 23, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Novation Contract #74-249-17, as amended by Amendment Agreements #74-249-18 through #74-249-20 with Catholic Charities CYO of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, for the provision of day treatment, mental health services, medication support and TBS for SED children at its St. Vincent’s School for Boys for the period from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, which included a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2020.  
  
Approval of Novation Contract #74-249-21 will replace the automatic extension under the prior contract and allow the contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.

CHILDREN'S IMPACT STATEMENT:

The recommendation supports one or more of the following children's outcomes: (1) Children Ready for and Succeeding in School; (4) Families that are Safe, Stable and Nurturing; and (5) Communities that are Safe and Provide a High Quality of Life for Children and Families.
