Archuleta County Collaborative Management Program Contract with San Juan Basin Health
Colorado’s commitment to improving social service delivery systems gave rise to the Collaborative Management Program (CMP) administered by the Division of Child Welfare. In 2004, the Colorado General Assembly passed House Bill 04-1451 to establish collaborative management programs at the county level that would improve outcomes for children, youth, and families involved with multiple agencies. 

Beginning in 2015, development of a local collaborative management structure and process brought together agencies and services for at-risk, high systems-use children, youth, and families. Partners in the local Collaborative Management Programs include county human services, 6th judicial district, health department, school district, community mental health  and behavioral health organization, parent or family advocacy groups, and community agencies.  

As a result of the 2015/16 efforts the local CMP became eligible for an allocation to operate the CMP.  It is with this allocation that the CMP will fund the proposed contract with San Juan Basin Health to Coordinate and support the ongoing goals of the Archuleta County Collaborative Management Program and provide leadership and administration for the Collaborative Management Program in Archuleta County.

Action requested:  Approve the  contractual agreement from February 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018, in the amount of $18,860.77, with the San Juan Basin Health Department to administer the Collaborative Management Program (CMP) in Archuleta County.
