Partnerships are key…
government grants, contracts, private foundations, volunteers, and a myriad of community partners are essential to our sustainability, and standing strong as a vital resource for the SGV region. Over the last 5 years the YWCA-SGV has invested a signiﬁcant amount of resources to develop multi-sector collaborations within the San Gabriel Valley to engage, empower, and build healthier communities by promoting health equity and violence prevention. To name a few, the Domestic Violence Healthcare Partnerships; Healthy Communities; and including other multi-sector partners like law enforcement and speciﬁc cities within SGV. These partnerships are committed to achieving broad social and system change at a population scale. In working as a collective we are able to explore regional intervention, prevention and policy strategies that address all aspects of health and social issues.
California Accountable Communities for Health Initiative (CACHI) — YWCA-SGV
is a backbone organization, advocating and propelling forward an agenda of building a healthier San Gabriel Valley. In this role, the YWCA SGV serves as a catalyst in building diverse, action-oriented coalitions; and providing leadership in convening and identifying multi-sector agencies to build out this initiative. As a collective, we envision A healthy, safe and resilient San Gabriel Valley; with a mission to create a regional movement that engages communities and organizations committed to impactful cross-sector collaboration. 1) Develop a communication network to share best practices, resources and data to create a healthier region; 2) Advocate for resources to improve the health of the region through a shared voice that is inclusive and represents the diversity of SGV; 3) Support local efforts to create positive change that improves the health of individuals and communities; and 4) Advance positive systems change in SGV.
Domestic Violence Healthcare Partnership Leadership Council
YWCA of San Gabriel Valley along with three other domestic violence focused organizations joined together to comprise the Domestic Violence Healthcare Partnership (DVHCP), Leadership Council in Los Angeles County. The three additional organizations includes Jenesse Center, Inc., East Los Angeles Women’s Center, and the Community Legal Aid SoCal. This is a project funded by BlueShield of California Foundation that is focused on system change across the region, and to disseminate DVHCP best practices, and promote DV and health care integration in Los Angeles County. In the spirit of working together, the DVHCP Leadership Council also collaborates with the Los Angeles County Domestic Violence Council Health Committee, under the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
