2010 Comprehensive Plan Update Data Presentation
The Douglas County
Commission on Children and Families is charged by the Oregon
Legislative Assembly to serve as the convener and facilitator for
creating our county’s coordinated comprehensive plan for children
and families. In 2001, Douglas County completed its six-year
comprehensive plan under ORS 417. 775, with the help of many
organizations. We updated the plan in 2004 and 2006. In 2007,
we completed our six-year plan for 2008-2014. This plan was
approved on January 16, 2008, by the County Board of Commissioners.
we are being asked to update trend data and describe strengths, gaps
and barriers around the various high level outcomes, including
poverty, juvenile crime, teen pregnancy, health, substance abuse and
education indicators. Rather than having large group meetings, we
met with many of our partners in small groups during May and June to
review trend data and discuss gaps, barriers, and current programs.
We also met with various collaborative groups, such as the Douglas
County Early Childhood Planning Coalition, the Public Safety
Coordinating Council and the Youth Advisory Board to provide input
on the plan elements. This information forms the foundation for
Douglas County’s new six-year comprehensive plan.

During May and June 2007, we meet with many of our partners to
review trend data and discuss gaps, barriers, and current programs
that address nineteen high level outcomes, such as poverty, child
maltreatment, juvenile crime, teen pregnancy, health, substance
abuse and education. We also met with various collaborative groups,
such as the Douglas County Early Childhood Planning Coalition (DCECPC),
the Public Safety Coordinating Council and the Youth Advisory Board
to provide input on the plan elements. This information will form
the foundation for Douglas County’s new six-year comprehensive plan,
which is due to the state in January 2008.

statistics that make up a deficit-oriented community
assessment, those that are gathered for a community profile
become a part of a comprehensive, strengths-based assessment
that expresses residents’ knowledge of their community. ...
It should be recognized, however, that gathering information
is an ongoing process that does not end when initial data
collection is completed.”
