Solano County DCSS Growing Partnerships and Outreach

By: Reanna Perez, CA DCSS

The Solano County Department of Child Support Services (Solano County DCSS) is excited to step into their new role at the county’s First 5 Center, celebrating its grand opening this month. The center is an innovation in Solano County and will serve as a hub, connecting families with young children to a broad range of services to under one roof, increasing accessibility and time-efficiency for everyone involved. Services on offer include basic support services, housing, employment, food, health, dental and child support services – all provided at no cost.

Solano County DCSS will be able to reach out to the community to build relationships and trust with potential customers while they are available on site. A caseworker will be present one day a week to help answer questions, open cases and assist current customers and those in the area that lack reliable transportation will be able to schedule appointments at the center instead of the county office.

Solano County DCSS Director Pamela Posehn said, “This is a great opportunity to provide a great service and build relationships within the community. We are excited to be a part of this center, which is the first of its kind in the area.”
