CWDS Will Continue to Support CARES-Live

To the all CWS Directors, CWS and Probation SPOCs and Core Constituents :

Great news!

The CWS-CARES Board of Directors has approved continued State support of CARES-Live for users. CWDS will continue to support and maintain the Child Welfare History Snapshot, Facility Search and CANS.

Since November of last year, we have seen steady growth of user adoption and have received great feedback from users that these tools enhance efficiency and effectiveness for the users. We would like to thank the project team for their commitment and our county partners for their continued engagement.

We will continue to support implementation efforts, facilitate learning opportunities and make ourselves available to provide demonstrations. Please contact CARES-Live@osi.ca.gov to request a demonstration and reach out to our Implementation team at CWDSImplementation@osi.ca.gov for assistance with implementing in your counties.

We are grateful for the show of commitment by the Board and we look forward to our continued partnership with the counties as together we increase user adoption of CARES-Live throughout the state.
