VOLUNTARY
AGREEMENT
To Implement RBS

Four Bay area counties, (San Francisco, San
Mateo, Contra Costa and Santa Clara) are:
– partnering with a collaborative of multiservice agencies (MSAs) for children and
families to create a diverse and wellcoordinated array of interventions,
services and service settings
BAC RBS is unique because:

A regional RBS resource was created by multiple counties
(each with multiple placing agencies including mental
health, probation and child welfare) and providers,
(Edgewood, Seneca, St. Vincents, Rebekah Children’s
Services, ASPIRAnet, and Aldea) because:
– families and kin often move from county to county
– many children are currently placed in group homes
outside the county where the family lives
– it is often difficult for service providers or families to get
from one part of the Bay area to another because of
traffic congestion and limited public transportation.
BAC RBS Foundation is built upon:

Developing universal, cross-county practices for consistently
and accurately assessing the level of care and matching
children/youth and families with the appropriate resources

Assembling support teams early in the child/youth’s
involvement in the system

Transforming the focus of current residential programs by
converting the physical, philosophical and programmatic
structure to a family-centered, community-connected and
outcome-driven operation
BAC RBS Foundation is built upon:

Establishing a process of ongoing utilization review
that measures gains in the achievement of positive
and sustained reconnection

Operating an integrated network of care anchored by
a group of multi-service agencies that work
collaboratively
