Mr. Vincent answered questions from Council members concerning what exactly was evaluated, higher-than-average reabuse rates and specific findings of his evaluation. With several caveats and with reluctance, Mr. Vincent responded to a request to grade ChildNet, with the grade of poor to fair. In response to the issues raised in the report and Council members concerns, Mr. Larry Rein, ChildNet, noted that the challenges are on the system side. He offered to share with Council members statistics that show ChildNet is the lead agency in the State on the issue of child safety and that it is tied with four other agencies as the lead agency in the State on the issue of permanency. He emphasized that when it came to child and family issues, ChildNet is doing extremely well when compared to other districts and, in fact, fares better than anyone else in the State. Ms. Sallarulo requested that the statistics cited by Mr. Rein be distributed to the Council members. With regard to the system challenges, Mr. Rein agreed with Mr. Vincent s analysis and noted that ChildNet will work to implement the recommendations. He also stated that ChildNet, in February, plans to internally implement similar qualitative reviews. In conclusion, he promised a report to the community in the coming year.

11 For Council Meeting January 18, 2007 Service Goal 7.1: Issue: Action: Budget Impact: Increase Availability of After School Programs Serving Economically Disadvantaged Children in the General Population. Renew Annual Contract for Deerfield Beach Housing Authority s MOST/ACCESS Program. Approve Deerfield Beach Housing Authority MOST/ACCESS Contract Renewal. $57,317 of $323,043 Available Within Unallocated in Goal 7.1 for FY06/07. Background: The Deerfield Beach Housing Authority s SHARE (Students Having A Real Experience) program was created to bridge the digital divide for children and youth residing in Deerfield public housing. The program was designed to improve school achievement by increasing access to computer technology in an after-school setting. The initial 20-month contract for $130,523 served 50 youth and monitoring verified quality programming during the initial contract term. However, during the second renewal the program struggled with participant retention, consistent service delivery and outcomes attainment. The Provider was placed on corrective action, and a contract extension through January 31, 2007, was approved in August 2006, to allow the Provider time to implement program improvements. Current Status: In accordance with the program s Corrective Action Plan, the provider hired a qualified computer instructor who is providing the children with daily structured, sequential activities to help them master software applications, keyboarding, and academic skills. A new program coordinator and an additional program assistant have also been hired to provide consistent high quality service delivery. Recent monitoring and site visits indicate that the Provider has been able to identify and maintain a core group of program participants; has consistently implemented the keyboarding, technology, and academic components; has offered a variety of cultural arts and community service activities; and has developed a systematic approach for collecting pre and post-test outcomes data. The Community Foundation of Broward has also committed to funding value-added activities such as field trips and cultural enrichment activities with a $15,000 grant for the 2007 school year. Action: Budget Impact: Approve Deerfield Beach Housing Authority MOST/ACCESS Contract Renewal. $57,317 of $323,043 Available Within Unallocated in Goal 7.1 for FY06/07.

20 For Council Meeting January 18, 2007 Service Goal 9.1: Objective 1: Issue: Action: Work with other funders to create a seamless Infant Mental Health System for at-risk families with infants and toddlers. Develop a coordinated system of maternal & child (ages 0-5) health and wellness for pregnant and parenting women, from screening/assessment to early intervention and treatment. Florida Association For Infant Mental Health 7 th Annual Conference Approve the Florida Association For Infant Mental Health s Match Request. Budget Impact: $10,000 of $63,241 Available in Unallocated within Goal 9.1. Background: Research has clearly demonstrated that effective infant mental health initiatives can significantly prevent and/or reduce serious behavioral, social and academic problems that become increasingly difficult and costly to treat. Since its inception, the Council has supported efforts to increase services and build provider capacity within the Infant Mental Health system of care. During FY , the Council dedicated $3,230,989 to Service Goal 9.1 in support of the Infant Mental Health System of care and dedicated $628,858 of these funds to three E.PI.C. Maternal Depression programs that provide mental health services to depressed mothers and their infants. Current Status: CSC has been approached by the Florida Association for Infant Mental Health to be one of the sponsors of the 7 th Annual Florida Association for Infant Mental Conference to be held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on May 16-18, The first day of the conference is dedicated to the issue of maternal depression and on the last day of the conference the Andrea Yates case will be presented by her defense attorney and psychiatrist. In addition to the topic of maternal depression, the conference has a cadre of national experts in the field of infant mental health scheduled to present. Past conferences have been excellent and provided an exceptional learning opportunity for professionals in the field. By providing community training in Infant Mental Health diagnosis and treatment, this high caliber local conference supports Goal # 5 of the Broward County Children s Strategic Plan: This conference is also a continuation of the work the Council began in 2003 that provided clinical training in this emerging field with funding from the Council and AHCA. The Florida Association for Infant Mental Health is requesting $10,000 sponsorship from the Council to use as match to the Broward Healthy Start Coalition, Inc. conference sponsorship of $10,000. In addition to the sponsorship from the Broward Healthy Start Coalition, the conference has received sponsorship commitments from the following organizations: The Children s Trust $10,000, Dade Community Foundation/Knight Foundation $5,000, Florida Department of Children and Families $10,000 and the March of Dimes $500. This collaborative conference funding structure is consistent with the Council s past support of the Caribbean Families Symposium and the Out of School Time Conference.

22 December 15, 2006 Karen Swartzbaugh Children s Services Council 351 North State Road 7, Suite 200 Plantation, FL Dear Ms. Swartzbaugh: It is with great excitement and anticipation that Broward Infant Mental Health Task Force is hosting the Florida Association for Infant Mental Health s 7 th Annual conference in collaboration with the Florida Infant Mental Health Association. This conference will be held at the Bahia Mar Resort on Fort Lauderdale Beach May 16-18, This high quality professional conference has elected to dedicate May 16, 2006 to the issue of Maternal Depression and DC 0-3 R training. There will be high caliber speakers from across the nation coming to share current research and psycho-pharmacological work,. As a culmination of the pre-conference day and the interwoven workshops that will address the topic from different perspectives, the Andrea Yates case will be presented on the final day of the conference by her defense attorney and psychiatrist. The Children s Services Council (CSC) has identified a community need for services to children in families that have a mother experiencing Maternal Depression. The CSC has acknowledged the importance of providing direct services to families through the funding of the evidenced based services offered in Early Prevention Intervention Programs (EPIC). This is formal request for $10,000 match funding. This represents a 1:1 match. The Broward Healthy Start Coalition has committed $10,000 for this event in addition to the in-kind donation of a designated Healthy Start consultant to this project. I have attached an estimated budget for this project based on conferences held in the past. I have also attached a copy of the varying levels of supports that are possible. When this request for match funds is approved please have your check made payable to Florida Association for Infant Mental Health. This request is made based on the current Broward County Children s Strategic Plan Goal #5: To improve the health of children prenatal to age 3. The action steps under Goal #5 include the provision of trainings in the community for service delivery staff and supervisors in Infant Mental Health diagnosis and treatment. The conference committee is planning to be able to provide between continuing education contact hours for those attending all three days of the conference. Knowing that CSC encourages strong community collaborations, please be advised that key stakeholders such as Healthy Start, Family Central, Nova Southeastern University, Susan B. Anthony and the Mental Health Association are working together to provide an incredible learning opportunity for all providers of Infant Mental Health services. It is our expectation that since this year the conference is local many of Broward s s service delivery staff and

23 supervisors of infant mental services that would not normally not be able to afford to come to this stellar event will have the chance to experience a professional conference in their back yard. When the Florida Association for Infant Health selected Maternal Depression as its main focus, the Broward Maternal Depression Task Force was honored in being requested to volunteer it s expertise in planning the pre-conference day. This will also provide stakeholders the opportunity to work alongside and spend time some of the best and brightest leaders in the field of Infant Mental Health. Thank you in advance your continued support. Sincerely, Michelle Rogers, LCSW Broward Infant Mental Health Task-chair cc: Evan Goldman Dr. Mimi Graham Dr. Wil Blechman

Some so small they fit in the palm of your hand. Some will not survive. Those that do may face lifelong health consequences such as chronic lung problems, mental retardation, blindness, and cerebral palsy. And the rate of premature births is rising making it the number one cause of infant death. That s why March of Dimes has launched a campaign to address the increasing rate of premature birth.

44 Annual Report to the Town of Davie FY 2005/06 January 22, 2007 Background In the Fall of 2004, the Council requested an exemption from the Town of Davie for use of Tax Increment Funding (T.I.F.). On January 19, 2005 the Town, the CRA and the Council entered into an Interlocal Agreement which granted the Council an exemption from paying T.I.F. revenues to the Davie CRA for FY 2004/05. In January 2006, The Council, the Town of Davie and the Davie CRA agreed to modify the Agreement to include an automatic renewal with the provision of annual reports. The Agreement outlined that, in lieu of paying the T.I.F., the Council would fund programs servicing children; specifically, Summer Camp Challenge and Maximizing Out of School Time (M.O.S.T.) programs. Summer Camp The Council once again included Davie as a priority area for Summer funding and staff from the Town of Davie were involved in the rating and selection process. As a result, Memorial Healthcare Systems was chosen as the provider of summer camp services. Memorial Healthcare Systems worked closely with staff from the Town s Parks and Recreation Department and Community Development Department to ensure that families in the target area had primary access to the new program. This was done through mass mailing as well as door to door marketing. Services were provided during Summer 2006 at both the Potter s Park Multipurpose Center and the Eastside Community Hall. There were 150 unduplicated children served in the summer program with an average daily attendance of 100 at Potter s Park and 25 at Eastside Community Hall. The Summer Camp program provided not only recreation and physical activity, but as promised, structured fun, reading, math, nutrition education and cultural arts components. The program was monitored at both sites and found to be well-managed, providing an excellent environment for children. The program met all of the following performance measures. Outcome Performance 100% of Children remained safe. 98% of Children increased word recognition. 94% of Children improved physical functioning 92% of Children maintained/improved math skills 91% of Children maintained improved nutrition knowledge.

45 Maximizing Out of School Time (MOST) M.O.S.T. afterschool programs were selected in April 2005, and staff from the Town of Davie were part of that selection process.

48 For Council Meeting January 18, 2007 Service Goals 2.1, 4.1, 4.4, 10.1: Issue: Action: Budget Impact: Family Strengthening Programs Encompass Four (4) Service Goals to Provide Support and Training for Parents and Reduce Risk Factors Related to Abuse and Neglect. FY 05/06 Family Strengthening Outcome Performance. None. For Informational Purposes Only. None. Background: The Council s second Family Strengthening RFP was released in April 2004 for programs designed to reduce the risk of child abuse and child neglect by replicating best practice models. Fifteen (15) contracts were operational for FY 05/06 to provide parent training and support to increase knowledge of appropriate child development, improve behavior management and conflict resolution and prevent out-of home placements. Family Strengthening programs encompass Service Goals 2.1, 4.1, 4.4, and 10.1 as listed below: Service Goal 2.1: Service Goal 4.1: Service Goal 4.4: Service Goal 10.1: Provide support and training for parents regarding developmentally appropriate supervision and nurturing of children through funding parenting programs focusing on behavior management, family communication and conflict resolution. Implement on-going parent education, mentoring and support programs for families with identified problems that are that are obstacles to family preservation. Expand resources available to address allegations of physical and sexual abuse and neglect. Provide funding to promote a continuum of care for children with special physical and developmental needs. All families must meet at least three of the following risk factors: allegations of child abuse and child neglect, poverty, domestic violence, history of substance abuse, parental mental illness, teen pregnancy and/or juvenile justice involvement. The Council s expenditure of over $5.5 million in FY 05/06 supported these Family Strengthening programs. Current Status: Monitoring of these diverse Family Strengthening initiatives confirms that programs are well managed and effective at providing an array of service components, including home visitation, family and individual counseling, case management, and parent education and support. Programs utilize research-based curriculums and best practices such as Wraparound, Multi-systemic Therapy (MST) and Family Functioning Therapy (FFT) to meet the complex needs of high risk families. Outcome performance for FY 05/06 is reflected on the attached chart. Please note that Aggregate Results captures all outcomes reported for each program; the program-specific outcomes which follow the Aggregate Results vary based on the service model used, population served and other related factors. Recommended Action: Budget Impact: None. For Informational Purposes Only. None. E:\CSC Council Packets PDF Archive\FY 06-07\Council 01_18_07\FS Outcomes IP.doc

56 For Council Meeting January 18, 2007 Services Goal 8.2: Objective 1: Issue: Action: Budget Impact: Work with Other Funders to Ensure the Full Continuum of Behavioral Healthcare is Available and Accessible to Children and their Families. Provide Funding for Programs Targeting Children with Special Behavioral Health Needs. FY 05/06 EPIC Outcome Performance. None. For Informational Purposes Only. None. Background: An RFP for Early Preventive Interventions for Children (EPIC) programs was released in May, 2005, and twelve (12) programs were operational for FY 2005/06. Nine (9) programs served children and youth with mental health conditions to prevent symptom escalation and reduce the intensity, frequency, and duration of behavioral episodes; three (3) programs serve new mothers suffering from maternal depression. Families served by EPIC programs have children with demonstrated acting out behaviors and families must meet at least three of the following risk factors: lack of appropriate child development, premature newborns and related medical birth complications, teen pregnancy, poverty, domestic violence, history of substance abuse and/or parental mental illness. The Council s expenditure of over $1.9 million in FY 05/06 supported these EPIC programs. Current Status: Despite initial delays, primarily the direct result of the impact of Hurricane Wilma, all programs are now functioning well. In addition to meeting challenges inherent in starting new programs, these programs also succeeded in implementing new best practice models (Triple P, Friends) requiring extensive training. Other unforeseen challenges involved the engagement of severely depressed mothers and staff turn-over due to the stresses of working with this particular population. Technical assistance in marketing, client engagement and retention, and utilization management has been on-going and effective. The EPIC programs are demonstrating increasingly positive trends toward effective program delivery and outcome achievement. Monitoring confirms that clinical components are proving effective with the complex population served. The programs targeting maternal depression, an emerging national crisis and an unmet local need prior to EPIC, have been particularly well received and will be showcased at the 7th Annual Infant Mental Health Conference, which will be held in Fort Lauderdale in May Outcome performance for FY 05/06 is reflected on the attached chart. Please note that Aggregate Results captures all outcomes reported for each program; the program-specific outcomes which follow the Aggregate Results vary based on the service model used, population served and other related factors.

Governor Appointee Julie Koenig, Chair. John Milledge, Esq. Donna Korn, Colliers Abood Wood-Fay; Robert Listokin, Colliers Abood Wood-Fay. Cindy Arenberg Seltzer, Esq., President/CEO; Monti Larsen, COO; Tani Seymore, Contract Compliance Accountant. Items distributed: Minutes from 12/6/06 meeting, Market Survey prepared by the Real Estate Broker. The meeting was called to order at 8:10 a.m. 1. Minutes from 12/06/06 Meeting ACTION: A motion to approve the minutes of the December 6, 2006 Office Space Committee meeting was made by Greg Durden. The motion was seconded by Ana Valladares and approved with no opposition. 2. Review List of Properties Identified by the Real Estate Broker The real estate brokers updated the Committee on their activities since the last meeting and presented a summary of the requested items involving available properties in CRA areas and along the Broward Blvd. corridor. They had contacted local CRA directors; sent letters to approximately property owners along the Broward corridor to gauge their interest in selling their land; had lengthy conversations with the developers of the Riverbend project; and did additional market research on property and buildings for sale in the target areas. E:\CSC Council Packets PDF Archive\FY 06-07\Council 01_18_07\Minutes doc

63 They reported that across the board, the CRA directors did not have much interest in the CSC owning property in their districts. They liked what we do but did not want a tax exempt entity in their CRA area. The letters to the property owners along the Broward corridor had just been sent and there was not sufficient time to have received any responses. The developers of the Riverbend project are interested in working with the CSC and said they would be willing to put together a proposal with 3 options, but would need a 3-4 weeks to compile. The Brokers reported that the developers stated they did not need CSC to jumpstart their project. They presented binders with profiles of available property and buildings. The Committee reviewed the properties in the handout and directed staff to take a tour of those most favorable and report back to the Committee. Further discussion ensued concerning the Riverbend project and possibly partnering with United Way to share a building. They liked the idea of creating a Human Services campus. The Committee directed Cindy Arenberg Seltzer to contact Doug Webber and Penny Westberry from ELC and gauge their interest in locating in the new development. 3. Next Steps 4. Next Meeting Staff is to review the properties that the Committee was most interested in, including the Diamond Building on Oakland Park. Staff is to have conversations with United Way and ELC to gage their interest in partnering with CSC for the new facility. The Brokers would contact the Riverbend developers and ask them to submit a proposal by the next meeting. Continue to explore available properties within the criteria. The next meeting would be scheduled towards the end of January. The meeting adjourned at 8:55 a.m. E:\CSC Council Packets PDF Archive\FY 06-07\Council 01_18_07\Minutes doc

There is ongoing discussion about how and who should fund and manage the plan on an on-going basis. There is some support for a collaboratively-funded consultant approach, but funding partners still need to be developed. Recommended Action: Budget Impact: Accept the Final Draft of the County-wide Children s Strategic Plan. None. E:\CSC Council Packets PDF Archive\FY 06-07\Council 01_18_07\BCCSP Issue Paper.doc
