The Team


The team consists of Behavioral Health, Probation, Child Welfare, Public Health, the Schools, Cal-Works, Family Preservation and Nevada County Wraparound providers. Children are referred through the schools.

Purpose


The goal of the team is to keep children safe in the community and succeeding in school. The SMART committee and the family talk about the child’s strengths, the family and community’s concerns and they come up with a plan to help the child. If a family is interested in such a meeting they should speak to their child’s school administration.
