Pay for Success (PFS) is an innovative contracting model that drives government resources toward high-performing social programs where funders provide capital to address a critical social issue, nonprofits deliver the services, evaluators rigorously measure outcomes, and the government replays the funders if the project successfully achieves positive outcomes.

Ventura County has two PFS projects: First 5 Ventura County’s preschool PFS is in the feasibility phase, and Interface Children & Family Services recidivism PFS project is being implemented and evaluated! We will learn about these PFS projects and hear from the grantees on the success and challenges for their programs. We’ll close with a facilitated discussion around how the Ventura County Funders Forum can support future PFS projects in our region.

  • Holly Goldberg, PhD is a Program Manager at First 5 Ventura County. She oversees the Pay for Success (PFS) feasibility study aimed at expanding high-quality preschool to children in Ventura County who do not currently have access.
  • Patti Yabu, LCSW, is the Director of Justice Services at Interface Children & Family Services. She sits on the Management Committee for the Ventura County Project to Support Reentry (Pay for Success contract), and has been involved in oversight of the service component of the project since it started in October 2017.

Lunch is sponsored by Ventura County Community Foundation.
