The California State Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP) recognizes the effectiveness of Celebrating Families!™(CF!) and awarded Prevention Partnership International (PPI) a $100,000, 2-year challenge grant to (1) Identify, train and support agencies in California to provide CF! and (2) establish the structure to continue expansion of CF! in the State. Currently there are several programs in San Jose, as well as in Sacramento and Hanford. All have outstanding evaluation outcomes. PPI has subcontracted with Community Solutions to lead this project.

About Celebrating Families!™:  
Celebrating Families!™(CF!) is an evidence-based, trauma-informed, skill building program of 16 sessions serving the whole family: children ages birth -17, their parents and caregivers. Each session begins with a family meal, followed by 90 minute age-appropriate instructional sessions, ends with a 30-minute family activity where families practice the skills they are learning. CF! was developed specifically for families dealing with or at high risk for a multiple problems: substance use disorders; multi-generational trauma; physical and mental health challenges; cognitive deficits due to trauma, genetics, or in-utereo exposure; and safety (child abuse/neglect). CF! addresses these needs through building healthy living skills, and psychoeducation.

RFQ Project Goals and Scope of Services:
This RFQ concerns organizations interested in receiving training and coaching to implement and evaluate the Celebrating Families!™ program at their site. Community Solutions (CS) is seeking two (2) organizations within the state of California to be trained and coached in implementing the CF! program. Training, mentoring, technical assistance and curriculum costs will be provided at no cost to the selected sites. The selections will be made to responsive and responsible organizations based on their organizational mission, strategic goals, capacity to achieve the grant deliverables, and capability to sustain the program beyond the 2-year grant cycle. The grant cycle will be June 1, 2019 – March, 31, 2021.
