Mission

The mission of the Advisory Board is to encourage cross-sector collaboration and transparent monitoring of the San Diego County child welfare system to ensure the safety and well-being of children and families.

Overview 

The Board of Supervisors has taken a strong leadership role in supporting efforts to prevent and respond to child abuse and neglect. The efforts focus on strengthening families by identifying and addressing the needs of children and youth who are in the public charge as well as those whose safety and welfare may be at risk.

The Child and Family Strengthening Advisory Board of San Diego County was created to enhance the ability of the County to prevent and respond to child abuse and neglect. The Advisory Board has absorbed the duties of the Child Abuse Prevention Coordinating Council and will work closely with the Polinsky Children’s Center Advisory Board and the San Diego Foster Care Services Committee. The Advisory Board has broad oversight over the County’s child welfare system.
