All Children Thrive
The City of Long Beach is embarking on an initiative to see all children living in our city have the resources and opportunity to thrive. The City of Long Beach Department of Health & Human Services will be leading this work with key partners including: The Children’s Clinic, Building Healthy Communities Long Beach, Long Beach Alliance for Children with Asthma, SAFE Long Beach Violence Prevention Plan, and other City of Long Beach departments of Finance and Libraries. This team will address social determinants of health utilizing an equity lens, authentic community engagement, and partnerships that support collective impact, focusing on children ages 0-8 and their parents. The goals of All Children Thrive will be determined and agreed on by the residents, parents, and families of Long Beach, through a series of community dialogues to take place in the Spring of 2018.
