The Clinton Health Matters Initiative, the County of San Diego and The San Diego Foundation have partnered to improve the health and well-being of children and families who interact with the child welfare and juvenile justice systems, with a specific focus on disparities present among African-American, Native American and Latino families.
In 2017, the Clinton Health Matters Initiative and its partners convened stakeholders from family-serving organizations and young people with systems involved lived experiences to form the Strong Families, Thriving Communities coalition. The coalition will help identify and implement systems change solutions that will address the social determinants of health for these children and families – including access to education, transportation, behavioral health and substance abuse treatment, nutrition and exercise, and community safety. Strong Families, Thriving Communities leverages public and private partners working together to encourage implementation of Bold Action Steps that create systemic solutions to improve the quality of life for children and families in San Diego.
