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 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. The OFR Program is a collaborative effort between Butte and Glenn County Children's Services Divisions and the Butte County Public Health Department. A Butte County Public Health Nurse (PHN) is assigned full time to this program.

Duties of the OFR Public Health Nurse:

  • Participate in the 48 hour foster parent readiness training program for prospective foster parents and relative care providers.
  • Provide regular in-home visits to children in OFR foster and relative care homes to assess the child’s progress, physically and developmentally, assist with linkages to medical, dental, behavioral and developmental services.
  • Provide ongoing education to foster parents on specific issues of the individual child in their care.
  • Communicate with Children’s Services staff on the health status of foster children and collaborate on provision of specialty care services.
  • Participate in the provision of family support events and periodic cross-training events.
