Continuous Quality Improvement

Community Partners Forum Focuses on Continuous Quality Improvement

“We simply cannot do this work alone.” DPSS Director Sayori Baldwin emphasized at the November 2021 Community Partners Forum. Baldwin explained how important collaboration is in order to intervene early and stabilize families in crisis. This year’s annual forum is the first since the pandemic began and the first to be held virtually. DPSS partnered with the Riverside County Probation Department and HOPE Collaborative for Child Abuse Prevention to sponsor and host the event. More than 100 employees and partners attended the conference to strategize, inform future planning and leverage resources to move into a fully integrated services delivery model.

The forum included updates on a system- improvement plan and countywide self- assessment, which engages the community to identify needs, service gaps, and strengthen the improvement plan for the following year. Attendees also learned about Trauma- Informed Care and Children’s Services’ Quality Parenting Initiative. Keynote speaker Dr. Wendy Weigmann from the California ChildWelfare Indicators Project at UC Berkeley also discussed how racial disproportionality impacts prevention and after-care services.
