Uncovering the Need
Collaborating and Coordinating
One of the most fundamental aspects of our approach is to research and uncover the current needs in Solano County. We ask the right questions, evaluate current processes, identify gaps and figure out what areas need the most support.
Once we've done the research and understand the needs, we work with and support community partners to bring much-needed services to families.
This includes direct involvement in coordinating those programs,
developing funding, providing training, promoting education and
We work hard to make sure our youth and families get what they need, lifting their voices in the development of policies that impact our community.
Together with various stakeholders,
we inform policymakers about the gaps in services and encourage action to address the issues identified.
