BACKGROUND INFO

Tehama County Community Action Agency provides low income families and individuals with assistance in accessing resources throughout the community for employment, education, housing, child care needs and more. The Wraparound and Family Support Programs focus on providing intensive case management services to families with children who have, or may be entering the Child Welfare System/Child Protective Service (CWS/CPS) because of serious or complex needs. The goal is to prevent the family from re-entering or entering CWS/CPS. The CalWORKs Family Stabilization Program works with individuals and families experiencing high barriers, making it difficult to participate in Welfare to Work. The AmeriCorps Service Volunteers work with the families to provide support through an assessment and individualized care case plan which outlines goals for the family and strategies to meet those goals; they assist with the implementation, follow through, and evaluation of this plan. They teach the family communication strategies, appropriate boundaries, and provide the family with rules and structure; all these activities take place with active participation from the families to ensure they are engaged in making changes to their lives.
