Workgroup Goals

  • Develop comprehensive list of existing resources to support children, their families and providers serving those 8 – 18 years of age
  • Identify gaps in services based on survey data / needs assessment data
  • Help support development of needed programs as identified through needs assessment process
  • Develop county-wide Speakers Bureau listing
  • Plan and execute Resource Fair for providers and possibly families

Collaboratively Accomplished

  • Adolescent Resource Guide has been developed in an electronic version using a QR code. It is a living document and can be updated at any point in time so users will have the current information. This document was shared at the Community Resource Fair, with all school districts in time for the start of the school year, as well as the CSCB membership. The committee continues to re-visit this document to identify additional supports to be included on it.
  • A comprehensive speaker’s bureau has been created on a variety of adolescent topics and is available to any group, committee, parents, or school that would be interested and request a topic county-wide.
  • Work has been underway to expand the workgroup membership to be more inclusive of all types of adolescent services.
  • Discussions have begun on the best way to offer a Resource Fair for families & professionals. The target date is to offer such an event in 2022.
