We are assessing the 10 vital services for surviving and thriving
Our goal is to ensure that all our families and community members have access to ten vital services, promoting the health, safety and resilience of all county residents. The five “surviving” services are medical care, housing security programs, food security programs, behavioral health care and transportation to services. Five services for “thriving” include: parent supports, early childhood learning/child care, fully-resourced community-focused schools, youth mentors and job training.
For those interested in supporting a data-driven, collaborative and technology-empowered initiative, please contact us at the Anna, Age Eight Institute.
