Description: The Virginia Center for Behavioral Rehabilitation (VCBR) was created by the Virginia General Assembly's passage of legislation in 1999. The legislation was enacted in 2003 and the current facility was located in Dinwiddie County. Like other states, Virginia has sought to create a secure treatment facility for those sex offenders believed to present the greatest threat to the community. Inmates from the Department of Corrections who are within 10 months of completing their sentences, and who have been convicted of certain sexual crimes are subjected to a comprehensive screening process. This results in some individuals being civilly committed to VCBR to participate in intensive treatment. Eventual conditional release back into the community is determined by their progress in treatment and reduction of re-offense risk.

Title: Virginia Assistive Technology System Web Site

URL: http://www.vats.org/

Description: The Virginia Assistive Technology System (VATS) is a statewide program authorized and funded by the Assistive Technology Act of 2004, as amended and administered by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services. VATS was established in 1990 with commitment to increasing awareness, accessibility and acquisition of assistive technology. The program is guided by an Advisory Council composed of individuals with disabilities, family members and representatives from Virginia's disability service agencies. One of VATS priorities’ is to establish assistive technology recycling programs across the State. VATS will work with local groups to plan and implement AT recycling specific to each community. In 2009, VATS applied for and received a grant from the Commonwealth Neurotrauma Initiative (CNI) Trust Fund Board. The three-year grant which is administered by VATS, created the Virginia Reuse Network (VRN). The mission of the VRN is to build the statewide reuse program’s capacity to better serve Virginians with spinal cord injuries (SCI) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), including Veterans, and to implement a state-of-the-art sanitization and processing program for DME through the purchase of innovative DME cleaning systems. VRN partner programs will work collaboratively with network affiliates and VATS to address the durable medical equipment (DME) needs of persons with disabilities, primarily those who do not have the resources necessary to purchase needed equipment. Although the VRN will continue to serve qualifying individuals with disabilities, the VRN is interested in improving service delivery and tracking reuse services provided to individuals with SCI and TBI. VATS has three Assistive Technology Regional Sites that provide community contact points throughout Virginia for assistive technology information and resources across designated regions. These Regional Sites provide training, public awareness, and general technical assistance for consumers who can benefit from the use of assistive technology.

Title: Transformation - Children's Systems Services

URL: http://vafamilyconnections.com/

Description: In December 2007, 13 Virginia localities representing over 40 percent of the Commonwealth’s children in foster care, were invited by the Secretary of Health and Human Resources, Marilyn Tavenner, to launch the Council on Reform. The group included a broad membership from both state and local child serving agencies. Secretary Tavenner’s charge to the group was to collaboratively plan and implement a set of critical reforms at the state and local levels including: To adopt a state-wide philosophy that supports family-focused, child-centered, community-based care with a focus on permanence for all children, To establish a state-level practice model focused on family-centered care and permanence that is reinforced by a uniform training program for resource families as well as local staff in DSS and CSA (integrated with DMHRSAS practice model), To create and implement a statewide strategy to increase availability and utilization of relative care and non-relative foster and adoptive placements to ensure that children can be placed in the most family-like setting that meets their needs, and To create a robust performance monitoring/quality assurance system to identify and measure outcomes, monitor quality of practice, and improve accountability. These critical reform areas were identified as the missing links in Virginia’s child welfare/child serving system. Later termed “building blocks” and adapted slightly, these strategies continue to be among the key drivers for improved outcomes for children in foster care in Virginia. While the Transformation is much broader than the work done in CORE, CORE was a starting place and a new model for state/partnership in Virginia. While still in the midst of major Transformation effort, the CORE group has made remarkable improvements on the key outcomes in a short period of time including: A 35.5 percent decrease in the congregate care population between December 2007 and May 2009, A 10.6 percent increase in kinship placements in the same time frame, Nearly 69 percent of children discharged in SFY 2009 (to date) went to permanent homes compared with 61 percent in SFY 2008. Localities in CORE include: Charlottesville, Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, Fairfax, Henrico, Newport News, Norfolk, Prince William, Richmond City, Roanoke County, Roanoke City, Virginia Beach and Washington County.
