CCCS & Big Lift Partner to Develop Promotora Concept


CCCS and Big Lift have partnered to develop a concept for addressing the top three CCCS priorities across the four communities: economic opportunity/housing instability, navigation of systems/services and mental health supports to Big Lift families. The concept focuses on bringing local champions (promotoras) into Big Lift schools to support families’ needs around navigating complex systems, accessing social services and connecting easily with mental health clinical staff onsite. The promotoras and clinical staff would be available for whole family supports recognizing that children can only bring their full potential for success when their families have their basic needs met. Big Lift is creating supportive environments and services for the children to learn and grow, and this would help wrap the family with the supports they need to help their children succeed. We’ll keep you posted as we seek funding for this work!
