Support and Implement Los Angeles County Home Visitation, Prevention, and Other Related Activities

The Los Angeles County Office of Child Protection (OCP) is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals for a contract to provide a consultant or consultant team to help support and implement a multi-year countywide prevention plan to coordinate and expand existing prevention-focused networks to further strengthen families, prevent child maltreatment, and reduce unnecessary burdens on the child welfare system.

It is envisioned that this consultant or consultant team will 1) facilitate Los Angeles County Home Visitation workgroups that are working to coordinate and expand home visitation efforts across the County, such as the Los Angeles County Home Visiting Collaborative Leadership Council; 2) help to identify additional funding for home visiting supports; 3) provide leadership and expertise to the key prevention initiatives being implemented in Los Angeles County that are all working towards connecting families early on to positive supports to reduce the number of children and families touched by the child welfare system, as well as the length and time for children and families already in the system; 4) lead other prevention efforts the OCP is involved in; and, 5) provide support for other related activities.

The required format for proposals is provided in Attachment A – Format of the Proposal. The Contractor shall be expected to implement the requirements outlined in Attachment B – Statement of Work (SOW). The Contractor shall also be expected to implement the requirements outlined inAttachment C – Sample Contract. The contract is anticipated to commence on December 1, 2021.
