- The Glenn County CICC was established in 1990 and serves a dual role. First, it serves as the Children's Interagency Coordinating Council according to Welfare and Institutions Codes (WIC) 18986.10. The CICC is mandated to accomplish the following:
- Collaborate on a countywide basis to ensure children receive the required services
- Identity all agencies that have a joint responsibility in providing services to children
- Identify gaps in services
- Develop policies and procedures to ensure effective services
- Implement private and public collaborations
- Provide countywide case management to coordinate resources
Secondly, the CICC functions as the Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) according to WIC 18982. The mandated members are almost identical. When the CICC functions as the CAPC it is mandated to accomplish the following:
- Provide a forum of interagency cooperation in the prevention, detection, treatment and legal processing of child abuse cases
- Promote public awareness of the abuse and neglect of children and the resources available
- Encourage and facilitate training of professionals in the detection, treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect
- Recommend improvement to service delivery systems
- Encourage community support for child abuse and neglect programs
By having one council fulfill dual roles we are able to address major child and family issues with the key players at the table. The end result has a positive effect on both the providers and the customers receiving services. The providers have better coordination and efficient systems to deliver services and the customers receive the better quality services more timely.
