The Parent Leadership Advisory Group is a partnership with the Child Abuse Prevention Coordinating Council and the California Department of Social Services. PLAG members meet monthly to discuss supportive services in Shasta County. Through this collaboration of parent leaders, community members, and other organizations, PLAG has created many resources for parents involved in Children and Family Services including:
A court handbook
A parent group
A parent phone line
An annual community conference
Blue Ribbon Court Orientation
PLAG Vision & Mission
Parents and professionals will collaborate to promote empowerment of families through parent leadership, mentoring in preventing child abuse, and building successful and healthy families. All families will have access to resources to increase positive outcomes related to Children and Family Services.
PLAG produced a court handbook "A Parents Guide: When Children and Family Services are Involved". This booklet is used to help answer questions and provide tips regarding involvement with Children and Family Services. To request a copy, contact 530-242-2020.
Parents can talk to someone who know how they feel and answer any questions about the CFS process and help connect them to resources. 530-710-8609
