In November 2007, Orange County was selected to participate in NCSACW's In-Depth Technical Assistance (IDTA) program in order to mobilize existing collaborative efforts within the County to improve outcomes for families with co-occurring child welfare and substance abuse problems that are in the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court. Led by a partnership between the County Social Services Agency (SSA), the County Health Care Agency (HCA), and the Juvenile Court, and fueled by an Advisory Committee that includes a broad spectrum of community, this initiative is invested supporting family recovery and ultimately preventing the need for court involvement. This report provides a summary of the consumer, agency staff and provider feedback that was collected in August 2008 via anonymous surveys conducted by the Service System workgroup, in order to inform the way that services are prioritized, resourced, and delivered in Orange County, in a manner that facilitates improved access, engagement, and retention to support the overarching goals of this initiative.
