SFY 2019-2020 Core Services Program Allocation and Plan

Background: In 1991, Article 5.5 of Title 26 was enacted to create the Colorado Family Preservation Act. Although the program is defined in State statutes as Family Preservation, the program is referenced in Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) Section 7.303.1 to 7.303.17 (12 CCR 2509-4) as the Core Services Program. Pursuant to Section 26-5.5-103, C.R.S., the Core Services Program serves families with children who are at imminent risk of out-of-home placement, or who, without intervention, risks continued involvement with the child welfare system as established by rules promulgated by the State Board of Human Services. The Core Services Program goals (7.303.11) are to: A. Focus on the family strengths by directing intensive services that support and strengthen the family and/or protect the child; B. Prevent out-of-home placement of the child; C. Return children in placement to their own home; D. Unite children with their permanent families; or E. Provide services that protect the child.

County Departments of Human/Social Services (Counties) are required to submit a Core Services Program Plan for approval by the Division of Child Welfare. Counties must have the eight basic Core Services accessible to children and their families who meet the eligibility criteria for the program. Those services are Home Based Intervention, Intensive Family Therapy, Life Skills, Day Treatment, Sexual Abuse Treatment, Special Economic Assistance, Mental Health Services, and Substance Abuse Treatment. Counties also have the option to provide County Designed Services (e.g., Bridges Treatment Program). 

The required annual Core Services Program Plan is due to the State Department by close of business Friday, July 27, 2019.

Staff recommends approval of the SFY 2019-2020 Core Services Program Allocation and Plan.
Responsible staff member:  Matt Dodson
