Community Collaboration for Children's Success (CCCS) Initiative Planning Process

San Mateo County, CA



The Community Collaboration for Children’s Success (CCCS) Initiative uses a place-based, trauma-informed approach to produce better outcomes for children in San Mateo County. Raimi + Associates, and our partner ChangeLab Solutions, were selected to lead the community planning process in four selected neighborhoods across the county. The neighborhoods were selected based on a combination of factors that impact youth success, including high concentrations of youth involvement in county systems, poverty, and low reading proficiency; as well as already existing programs that provide a range of support for youth and their families. The planning process will involve extensive community engagement and data collection to identify strategies and interventions to address barriers and issues prioritized by community members. Through the participatory planning process, community members will help create community plans that prioritize strategies to support youth success.
