Comprehensive Services Act for At-Risk Youth
Coordination of services through the Comprehensive Services Act (CSA) are
designed to help troubled youths and their families. State and local
agencies, parents and private service providers work together to plan and
provide services in our community.
There are local teams available that decide the best ways to provide for
the youth of Smyth County:
Family Assessment Planning Team (FAPT)-meets the second Friday
(9 a.m. to 12 noon) and the third Thursday (1 to 4 p.m.) of each month in the fourth floor DSS conference room at the Smyth County Administration Building.
Community Policy and Management Team (CPMT)-meets the third Thursday (2 to 4 p.m.) of each month in the fourth floor DSS Board Room at the Smyth County Administration Building.
Program Managers Planning Team (PMPT)-meets quarterly to collaborate in the provision of services for needy families, training, funding issues, etc. Time and place of meeting to be announced.
This collaborative system of services and funding is child-centered,
family-focused and community-based when addressing the strengths and needs
of troubled and at-risk youths and their families in Smyth County.
