Comprehensive and Planning Process

The Josephine County Commission for Children and Families was established by the Board of County Commissioners in January 1994.  This Commission’s Advisory Board includes both lay and professional members representing child and youth serving agencies.

 

The Commission participated in state-sponsored workshops and regular monthly meetings to develop a goal for conducting a Comprehensive Plan for Josephine County.  The planning process involved community members, agencies and organizations that included social service agency line staff and management, parents, school district staff, neighborhood members, community volunteers, youth, employment services, criminal justice, and elected officials.  The Phase 2, Comprehensive Planning for Children, Youth, and Families was adopted in January 2002, with an update to the Executive Summary completed in both June 2004 and January 2006.  The strategies of the Juvenile Crime Prevention Plan, the Local Alcohol and Drug Prevention Plan, Mental Health and Public Health Plans are included in the Comprehensive Plan for Children, Youth, and Families.

 

The results of this process and a historical review of risks affecting the children and families in Josephine County led to the selection of priorities and strategies to accomplish the communities’ Vision:  Josephine County promotes the development of the full potential of all children and families.
