The California Community Care Coordination Collaborative (5Cs) improves local systems of care for children with special health care needs. Coalitions are organized by county and bring together staff from the California Children’s Services Program, Regional Centers, Family Resource Centers, Early Start, as well as pediatricians, public health nurses, and special education and mental health professionals. Effective care coordination requires strong inter-agency communication. Through ongoing convenings, the 5Cs coalitions have a structured opportunity to learn from one another, identify areas of shared need, discuss emerging challenges, and connect with others engaged in improving quality of services.
We are currently funding coalitions in the following counties:
San Joaquin County
If you’re interested in starting a 5Cs coalition in your county, please contact us at info [at] lpfch.org.
