The CCA Notifications Desk keeps
children safe and helps Child Caring Agencies (CCAs) succeed by providing
critical information to those with interest or oversight of CCAs.
Information such as abuse allegations, concerns of regulatory violations and
other complaints regarding CCAs is of great importance to:
- Government agencies who contract with and provide
oversight to CCAs,
- Boards and Executive leadership of CCAs
- Parents of Children in Care
- Other groups and individuals with legal interest in the
safety of children in CCAs.
The CCA Notifications Desk is
responsible for notifications, tracking action items, compiling data, and
providing consultation regarding sensitive information in varied and complex
systems of care for children. The team works closely with individual
field offices of various government agencies, DHS programs, OHA, OYA, and Child
Caring Agencies to ensure consistent training and operations are following the
intent of SB 1515.
The CCA Notifications Desk manages the web-based system that is utilized to
track detailed data used for improving operations and developing new approaches
for identified systemic issues as well as reporting to the legislature as it
relates to SB1515. It is an integral part in assuring the department’s
compliance with SB 1515 that was passed in 2016.
- The CCA Desk was a result of SB 1515 in 2016
- The CCA Desk works closely with the Office of Training,
Investigations and Safety (OTIS) Investigators, statewide screening units
and Children’s Care Licensing Unit to ensure safety of children
- The CCA desk receives an average of over 190 reports of
child abuse/neglect and program concerns a month.
