SMART (Special Multi-Agency Resource Team) is a multi disciplinary team that meets weekly to discuss high risk children in the community. The child’s family is invited to the meeting.
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.
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.
