Please join SCG and the Center for Strategic Public-Private Partnerships to explore prevention efforts around perinatal and early childhood home visiting programs at the next meeting of the LA County Child Welfare Funders Collaborative.

LA County is fortunate to have a strong foundation of home visiting programs, but we are not yet achieving our full potential with these services. The Board of Supervisors recently passed a motion calling on the Department of Public Health and other departments to devise a robust, countywide system of home visiting.

The Department of Public Health's Linda Aragon, who is charged with responding to this motion, will join us to discuss
the development of this plan and to hear input from you. 

Kalene Gilbert with the Department of Mental Health will also share about her department's role in support of home visiting.

In addition, Christina Altmayer, Vice President of Programs at First 5 LA, will join us to discuss her organization's significant investment in, and support of, home visiting. The Center is also delighted to present on its initiatives and share opportunities for you to get involved in our work.
