The vision of the Council is that all families and children in Plumas County are healthy and safe.
The primary purpose of the Children's Council is to coordinate the community's efforts to prevent and respond to child abuse and neglect. Additional information regarding California Child Abuse Prevention Councils (CAPCs) can be found here: capcfactsheet.pdf
The Plumas Children’s Council is was established in 1988 by the Plumas County Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors has designated the Children’s Council as the administrator of the County’s Children’s Trust Fund. The Council also oversees the state's Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention and Treatment (CAPIT) funds, the Community Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) funds and the federal Promoting Safe and Stable Families (PSSF) funds. Plumas County's Children's Trust Fund includes donations from the public. These donations are used each year to award Mini-Grants for additional county projects and services.
The Plumas Children's Council usually meets on the third Wednesday of the month and the meetings are open to the public. Agendas are posted to this site at least three days before each meeting.
