The current California child support program limits accessibility by not being a trauma-informed organization, which impacts parents who seek our services

Business Problem/Opportunity: To change the limits of accessibility and become an agency where all parents can utilize our services requires a culture change. This requires California Child Support Services to focus on building blocks to build a trauma-informed organization that requires shared knowledge, understanding, commitments, practices, and culture. These require in-depth training throughout the department and all managers and supervisors practicing transformational leadership.

Current Status: 23% completed

Business Outcomes:

  • Create a trauma-informed culture throughout the child support program in a multi-year phased approach for internal staff and to the families we serve to obtain the services they need without reliving trauma during the child support process

Critical Success Factors: Becoming a trauma-informed organization requires a culture change. This change can only occur over several years. An assessment of the current state of our trauma-informed practices will be conducted to determine the gaps, which will then address the items needed to move the organization into the desired future state
