First Countywide Steering Committee Meeting
On April 18, the Community Collaboration
for Children’s Success (CCCS) Countywide Steering
Committee convened for the first time and shared their hopes for
the project. The Steering Committee includes representatives from
the core CCCS agencies—the San Mateo County Health System, Human
Services Agency, Probation Department, First Five and County
Office of Education—as well as key stakeholders from county
agencies, boards and commissions, and select community-based
organizations. The Steering Committee brings firsthand knowledge
of systems, services, and resources focused on supporting youth
success in the areas of juvenile justice, education, youth
services, youth health and youth engagement.
The Steering Committee’s role throughout the process will be to make recommendations based on their expertise in systems and services and act as a liaison between the initiative and their agency or organization.
Raimi + Associates, an urban planning firm, led the meeting with evaluation support from San Francisco State University’s Health Equity Institute (HEI). Raimi staff will lead in-the-field community engagement, and HEI staff will conduct evaluation throughout the community engagement process to help us improve as we go.
