Community Collaboration for Children’s Success
The County of San Mateo is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to identify a contractor for the Community Collaboration for Children’s Success (CCCS) project to conduct a place-based, trauma-informed community engagement process in four locations within San Mateo County to identify interconnected strategies which improve the health and well-being of vulnerable children and families.
Through the community engagement and planning processes, the contractor will work with community stakeholders to review data, assess the barriers to children’s success, and identify the aspirations of the community in order to articulate informed action plans for each of the four communities. The action plans will lay the groundwork for collaborative, effective solutions for vulnerable children and their families and ultimately prevent the conditions that bring children and families into contact with high intensity services in Child Welfare, Juvenile Probation and Behavioral Health and Recovery Services. The CCCS project will identify strategies to remove childhood barriers to success and improve outcomes for children in San Mateo County. The County plans to support implementation of the community plans in the 2019/20 – 2020/21 budget cycle as a starting point.
The target start date and term for the proposed consulting services is March 2018 through June 2019, subject to negotiation of a final agreement.
