Who We Are

Douglas County Community Response exists to work across systems and community collaborations to promote child well-being, and provide a coordinated prevention system of services.

In primary prevention, the primary responsibility for the development and well-being of children lies within the family, and all segments of society must support families as they raise their children. A prevention system includes coordinates services and efforts directly to a population to prevent maltreatment before it occurs and promotes protective factors for families. We work to understand and recognize families and coordinate a response to best serve children, youth and families to access needed supports and services.
