RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the County Probation Officer, or designee, to execute a contract with the Seneca Family of Agencies in an amount not to exceed $357,501 to provide Wraparound Services for youth throughout Contra Costa County for the term December 1, 2020 through November 30, 2021.

FISCAL IMPACT:

100% Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act (JJCPA)revenue.













BACKGROUND:

Seneca provides wraparound services for youth transitioning from short-term residential therapeutic programs who are in need of additional support, 18-year-old non-minor dependents who hope to remain with the family, and imminent risk/ placement avoidance youth. Services are provided to the youth and their families to help them develop an individual plan working to gain the ability to manage daily challenges in a healthy way. The Employment and Human Services Department (EHSD) previously provided these services. As a result of COVID-19, EHSD lost the funding available to provide these services to our youths. JJCPA revenue was made available by the Crime Prevention Act of 2000 (Chapter 353) to provide a stable funding source for local juvenile justice programs aimed at curbing crime and delinquency among at-risk youth and juvenile offenders. The Probation Department has a small fund balance in our JJCPA revenue and can use these funds to continue to support wraparound services for our youths.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

Services will not be available to youth at a difficult time of transition or placement avoidance.

CHILDREN'S IMPACT STATEMENT:

This action supports one of the community outcomes established in the Children’s Report Card. 1) “Children and Youth Healthy and Preparing for a Productive Adulthood.”
