Community Collaboration for Children’s Success
The Community Collaboration for Children’s Success initiative (CCCS) works with youth and families to understand barriers and opportunities for youth success in San Mateo County.
In San Mateo County, 53% of youth clients in Probation and 43% in Behavioral Health and Recovery Services come from the same 4 zip codes.
Using a place-based, trauma-informed approach, the CCCS team works with youth and families to identify barriers to success and address long-standing sources of risk. Through creative community building activities and data collection methods, community members share perspectives and solutions, identifying priority interventions to support youth success and creating neighborhood plans in four San Mateo County neighborhoods. Neighborhood plans will be implemented in the phase following planning.
