Children's Network

Mission: To improve opportunities for children, youth, and families in Santa Cruz County.

The purpose of the Children's Network is to reduce the fragmentation of programs for at-risk children and families in the County. The Network serves as a vehicle for planning, coordination, collaboration, information sharing and networking. Over the past several years, the Network has been integral in the planning of service delivery for children and families in the county. Thirty-one key agency heads are mandated or voluntarily participate in the voting Cabinet, including the County Departments of Health, Human Services Probation, the County Superintendent of Schools, various directors of key agencies such as First 5, the Housing Authority, as well as many more.
