Subject:RE: Request for info on programs serving families "deflected" from CPS

In California we have a program like this, called Front Porch. The initial calls go to CPS and are then forwarded onto Front Porch which is administered by our non-profit Child abuse agency. The services can be delivered within the home or in the office. Thank you Ann Bryant CALM Child Abuse Listening Mediation; Santa Barbara Calif.

I am trying to identify states or counties/regions that have voluntary service programs dedicated to (i.e., exclusively intended for) families who are reported and potentially also investigated by CPS, but whose cases are closed at that point. I am particularly interested in examples of programs/services that are separate from/external to CPS. I am not looking for information on alternative/differential response models that are delivered internal to CPS systems. I know about “Community Response” in Wisconsin and Colorado, Minnesota's Parent Support Outreach Program (although I am not sure if this still exists or not), and I believe California may have a three-tiered front-end track with one of the tracks involving voluntary services delivered external to CPS. If you believe your state/county/region has such a program, if you could reply to me off-line with the name of the program and the entity that runs it, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thank you!
