Partnership for Early Access for Kids

Partnership for Early Access for Kids Initiative (PEAK) is a county wide multi-agency partnership that provides prevention and early intervention services with the goals of early identification and treatment for special needs, and prevention of child abuse and neglect. The Organization is the lead agency in a seven agency collaborative, and provides coordination for the entire initiative. PEAK service strategies include developmental screening and assessment, parent coaching, parent and provider education, and short term treatment. Families engaged in PEAK services are linked to partner agencies and services as appropriate to their individual needs. The Organization’s Family Support Specialist provides a developmental screening and refers the family for higher level of services as indicated, such as Regional Center, School Districts, mental health, or the pediatric health care provider. The Organization is also a recognized vendor for the State of California Department of Developmental Services, and provides one-on-one (home-based) and group (center-based) infant development intervention for children 5eligible under the California Early Start program from birth through thirty-six months.The Organization is a contracted provider for children referred by North Bay Regional Center (Solano and Napa Counties), and Alta California Regional Center (Yolo County).

Home based early childhood mental health and behavioral services provide comprehensive assessment and treatment for children from birth to age five to assess social and emotional health, and improve the parent-child relationshiso they are better prepared to enter school at age five. Clients referred for EPSDT services include those who have been traumatized, prenatally exposed to drugs and alcohol, those with developmental delays needing further evaluation, children in the Child Welfare system, or those with other family stressors such as homelessness, domestic violence, and poverty.

Counseling and services are provided to students at their school site with California Board of Behavioral Sciences registered or licensed therapists who are experienced in working with children from Kindergarten through high school. The area served is comprised of all schools in five Solano County school districts: Benicia Unified School District, Dixon Unified School District, Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District, Travis Unified School District, and Vacaville  Unified School District. Approximately, 289 students were served in the 2012/13 school year.  Future years will show an increase in services as the program started during the last quarter of 2011.
In addition, school based services include mental health counseling services for general education students through Solano County MHSA and EPSDT programs, with the goal of a seamless service delivery system for each school.

Healthy Families America is an evidence-based, nationall recognized home visiting program model designed to work with overburdened families who are at-risk for adverse children experiences, including child maltreatment. It is the primary homevisiting model best equipped to work with families who may have histories of trauma, intimate partner violence, and mental health and/or substance abuse issues. HFA services begin prenatally or right after the birth of a baby and are offered voluntarily, intensively and over the long-term (up to 3 years after the birth of the baby). The HFA model, launched in 1991 by Prevent Child Abuse America, is based upon criticial elements derived from more than 30 years of research to ensure programs are effective in working with families. The goals of the HFA program are to:- Build and sustain community partnerships to systematically engage overburdened familes in home visiting service prenatally or at birth.- Cultivate and strengthen nuturing parent-child relationships. - Promote healty childhood growth and development.- Enhance family functionaing by reducing risk and building protective factors.Children's Nurturing Project will partner with five other local agencies to provide the HFA program county-wide.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goals for 2014/15:

1. Expand school based counseling and mental health services for at-risk children, trauma exposed children, and children in the special education systems.

2. Train at least 4 CNP children's mental health clinicians in Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (Perry, BD Child Trauma Academy) for use in trauma informed care philosophy and model with both early childhood and school based services,

3. Develop and implement services for children on the Autism spectrum and their families.

4. Implement pediatric developmental/behavioral specialty clinic for referral by primary care pediatricians.

5. Expand early childhood developmental and social emotional screening programs throughout Solano and into neighboring counties

6. Fully develop "Help Me Grow Solano" system of care based on national best practice model (www.HelpMeGrowNational.org)

7. Develop and implement treatment and case management program for child victims of sexual exploitation/human trafficking in Solano County, CA in collaboration with law enforcement, child welfare, and the District Attorney's office.

Strategies toward meeting all goals include continued work with partners in a collective impact model. In 2013/2014, CNP was awarded a 3 year contract from First 5 Solano to oversee and implement a countywide collective impact planning process for services and gaps for young children and families in Solano County.

Children's Nurturing Project has the capacity to implement goals based on current level of staff expertise, interdisciplinary model of care, and highly collaborative structure. We are well- engaged with many public/private partnerships that leverage human and financial resources. In 2013, CNP in coordination with the Solano County District Attorney's office, key law enforcement agencies, and appropriate service providers, launched the Solano County Human Trafficking Task Force, which meets quarterly as an information sharing and community action platform toward the prevention of and response to child sexual exploitation and trafficking in Solano County, throughout the west coast, and the world.

Progress updates toward stated goals and outcomes in all programs will be posted at the end of the 2014-2015 reporting period.
