Gallia County Children Services Board

and

Meigs County Department of Job and Family Services

START Program (Sobriety, Treatment, and Reducing Trauma)

Request for Proposal (hereinafter “RFP”)

 

Introduction

Gallia County Children Services Board and Meigs County Department of Job and Family Services (hereinafter referred to as GCCSB/MCDJFS) serves abused, neglected, and dependent children and provides services to promote child safety, permanency, and overall well-being for all children served. This RFP is a partnership of GCCSB/MCDJFS. Any responses to this RFP must incorporate both counties and any proposal which does not, will be rejected. To accomplish its mission, the agencies provide a variety of services predicated on the belief that, whenever possible, the best place for children is in their own home. GCCSB/MCDJFS makes efforts to support parents while ensuring the safety of their children by providing and/or securing services that address parental issues that contribute to child maltreatment.

Ohio START (Sobriety, Treatment, and Reducing Trauma) is an intervention program that will provide specialized victim services, such as intensive trauma counseling, to children who have suffered victimization due to parental drug use. The program will also provide drug treatment for parents of children referred to the program. Created through the office of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, Ohio START requires the partnering of county Public Children Services Agencies (PCSAs), behavioral health providers, and juvenile/family courts. A key element of this program will be certified peer recovery supporters who will be paired with a child welfare caseworker to provide intensive case management services. Casey Family Programs is joining with the Ohio Attorney General in investing in promising strategies for Ohio START in southern Ohio. This grant creates an opportunity for a new best practice model designed to lead to better outcomes for children and families impacted by opiates and other drugs. The overall goal of this program is to stabilize families harmed by parental drug use so that both children and their parents can recover and move forward with abuse-free and addiction-free lives. Ohio START integrates community partners to ensure the seamless provision of wraparound. Sobriety, Treatment and Recovery Teams (START) began operation in Cuyahoga County, Cleveland, Ohio in March 1997. The initiation of START began in Kentucky in the spring of 2006 as a replication of the START model from Cleveland, Ohio. The START program in Kentucky resulted in about half as many children returning to foster care due to parental addiction. Parents involved in the Kentucky program were also found to have twice the sobriety rate. Kentucky START has been rated as Promising Research Evidence on the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare. 

Grant funding will be used to develop strategic partnerships between county PCSAs and local agencies to ensure the seamless and efficient delivery of wraparound services to families with co-occurring drug abuse and child maltreatment. The services and the process in which they are delivered will focus primarily on ensuring that the child is safe and receiving trauma-informed services and supports and provide the parent with trauma-informed recovery services to promote long-term stability and sobriety.

The program will primarily be funded through a Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant from the Ohio Attorney General's Office which will be shared among the counties over two and a half years. These grant funds will be specifically spent to help county child welfare agencies identify children who have been victimized due to parental drug use and provide them with specialized treatment for any resulting behavioral or emotional trauma. The grant will also fund victim services for parents with underlying victimization that may be contributing to their addiction. Casey Family Programs, which partnered with the Ohio Attorney General's Office to develop the Ohio START program, is providing additional funds for the pilot program. Both grants will be administered by the Public Children Services Association of Ohio (PCSAO).

The 19 counties in southern Ohio covered by the grant include Adams, Athens, Brown, Clermont, Clinton, Fairfield, Fayette, Gallia, Highland, Hocking, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, Perry, Pickaway, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton.

The county PCSAs implementing Ohio START will work directly with the victims, abused and neglected children, and their families in GALLIA and MEIGS Counties. The children involved with this program are the victims that have at least one parent that has a substance use disorder (SUD) and has mistreated the child. The child and the family will be identified by the PCSAs through the screening and assessment process. The county PCSAs will be entering into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with their behavioral health providers and juvenile/family court to implement Ohio START. The behavioral health providers/mental health providers will be employing certified peer recovery supports who quite possibly have experienced drug use related trauma and victimization.

To best meet the needs of the children and families it serves, GCCSB/MCDJFS is seeking to collaborate with existing AOD/Mental Health/Behavioral Health providers for developing a START program with peer mentors/recovery coaches. This is an effective tool in providing services to parents to achieve higher rates of recovery. GCCSB/MCDJFS will develop partnerships between a service provider and GCCSB/MCDJFS staff as active, trained members of the recovery team. The coaches/mentors will help parents develop the coping skills, tools and linkages to significantly reduce or eliminate the re-occurrence of maltreatment or possibility of re-entry of youth into the custody of GCCSB/MCDJFS.
