Background Discussion

The attached Children's Services Annual report is presented under Purpose Categories that represent the preliminary determination of the nature and types of programs and services that Children's Services Advisory Board recommends for funding.  The most recent accomplishments or outcome results of the funded programs are noted along with the corresponding determination of needs, which includes data monitored and gathered from a variety of reliable and relevant local, state, and national data sources and research.  New programs, funded for the first time in FY14/15, note the proposed outcomes in the absence of measured outcome results. 

The report also includes new initiatives of the Advisory Board to address child and family issues, some of which were identified during the October 14, 2014, Work Session and others identified through the review of indicator data during the Advisory Board's Annual Retreat held on November 9, 2014.

The Advisory Board reviews and evaluates children and family indicator data on an ongoing basis in their determination of the types of programs that should be recommended to meet the needs of children and families in our community.

A chart reporting the number of clients that received services per Purpose Category is included.
