The Comprehensive Services Act for At-Risk Youth and Families (CSA) is a law enacted in 1993 that establishes a single state pool of funds to purchase services for at- risk youth and their families. The state funds, combined with local community funds, are managed by local interagency teams who plan and oversee services to youth.

The City of Danville CSA Office mission is to create, maintain, reform, renew and assess a collaborative, cost-conscious system of services that is child-centered, family-focused, and community-engaged when developing, determining, implementing and evaluating services provided to children and at-risk families in the Danville area, using the least restrictive service type, expeditiously and without prejudice, to promote sustainability, self-sufficiency and a positive impact for the children and families served.

What is the CSA program?

The City of Danville CSA Program is administered based on the following values: integrity, accountability, responsibility, and fairness. For CSA to progress effectively and efficiently, the development of new policy, revision of old policy, and office process changes are implemented for the sole purpose of accountability, responsibility, and fairness.

Danville Office of Comprehensive Services (D-OCS) Task Force
The D-OCS Task Force is comprised of the CSA Coordinator, D-CPMT representatives, FAPT representatives, and stakeholders in the community. The D-OCS Task Force is charged with developing a 10-Year Strategic Plan for the Danville CSA Program. The strategic plan will focus on the mission and purpose of CSA through creating goals and objectives conducive to creating a sustainable system of care.

To date, the D-OCS Task Force has five major goals:

  1. Promote, maintain and evaluate family involvement in IFSP development, implementation and evaluation.
  2. Optimize and maximize its knowledge and use of community resources.
  3. Adopt a “prevention-driven” identification model for service planning and provision with an emphasis on “pattern interruption”.
  4. Actively initiate and utilize a “No Wrong Door” philosophy.
  5. Ensure child-centered AND family-focused service recommendations are implemented properly and evaluated for effectiveness.
The D-OCS Task Force welcomes and values community input.
