Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

Public Health Nursing Programs

Our Public Health Nursing Division works with the Butte County Department of Employment and Social Services to provide nursing case management services in several of their programs.  Additional information regarding the following programs can be found on their respective webpages:

Options for Recovery

The Options for Recovery (OFR) Program is a program that recruits and trains foster parents and relative caregivers in Butte and Glenn Counties to care for children aged 0 to 60 months who are alcohol/drug exposed and/or HIV positive.


Wellness to Work

The Wellness to Work Public Health Nurse (WTW-PHN) program is a collaboration between Butte County Department of Employment and Social Services (DESS) and Butte County Public Health. A public health nurse is available by referral from DESS Employment Case Managers to assist clients who have medical barriers to employment and success within the DESS programs of CalLEARN and CalWORKS.


Children in Foster Care

Public Health Nurses in Foster Care Services work with social workers in the Children Services Division to provide medical case management for children who are in foster care placement.


Adult Services

Two Public Health Nurse's work with the social workers to assist our elderly and disabled adult population in Butte County.
