Focused Responses to Key Issues
When collaborative members encounter a gap in services or responsibility that corresponds to an important need of the community, they tend to come together to work toward a solution. This process has repeated itself several times in the history of the CVCC. The energy of collaborative members and the leadership of local service providers have fostered the establishment of new services, issue-based planning efforts, and resident mobilization campaigns.
The CVCC has responded to the need for after school activities, drug and alcohol issues, and homelessness. The CVCC has created and participated in programs to provide culturally appropriate health education. It has also worked with residents to establish a grassroots organization that promotes leadership development and community service.
