Local officials and staff play a vital role in the wellness,
health and safety of California’s children and families. To
address health and social disparities, cities are looking to
build upon innovative methods to maximize finite economic and
human resources. Specifically, agencies and staff are using
collective impact approaches to create healthier and more vibrant
communities. By leveraging collaboration for shared services,
joint use or proactive program planning, communities may achieve
results greater than they could achieve on their own.
This resource center includes a variety of resources and tools,
including webinars and case stories, for local officials and
staff to learn more about how to use collaborative approaches to
address community challenges, specifically in areas of healthy
eating/active living, safety and violence prevention.
