East Palo Alto and Daly City Engagement Updates
Community members from East Palo Alto and Daly City are continuing to meet as the CCCS Neighborhood Leadership Groups to prioritize needs, assets and strategies. On March 13 community members in East Palo Alto identified cost of living and gentrification, emotional trauma, racial inequities and not enough time with supportive adults among the highest priority community issues for youth. In Daly City on March 25, community leaders identified cost of living, mental health support, racial inequities, policing challenges, and affordable childcare, preschool and afterschool programs among other things. It’s clear that there are a lot of similarities with the challenges communities are facing across all four CCCS neighborhoods, but each neighborhood also has its own special challenges and strengths.
