Innovating Service to the Community
PRO Youth and Families has joined more than 25 other nonprofit and civic organizations to form a collective that revolutionizes social impact in the Greater Sacramento region. The Youth & Family Collective integrates organizations that are already advancing complementary goals, aligning programs and effort to uproot long-entrenched causes of trauma in our communities.
Youth & Family Collective is a regional platform that streamlines administrative functions and fund development to deliver greater value per donated dollar. But, in addition to providing greater efficiency, the collective also delivers holistic support to the whole person.
The challenges faced by youth and families are all interconnected – and all rooted in trauma. For instance, the same young person who is confronting violence in the home is statistically more likely to also face drug and alcohol problems, truancy, or teen pregnancy.
Excellent nonprofits are already addressing each of these challenges, but traditionally they operate in silos, cooperation is ad hoc and difficult, and youth and families already burdened by trauma are forced to navigate a maze of separate organizations.
We believe an umbrella organization is needed to manage, refer, and counsel these individuals under a single case management system. And Youth & Family Collective will do just that.
Collective Effort = Collective Impact
Dozens of nonprofits, grantors, public agencies, and other institutions have already pledged to join or support this collective, leading a next generation of youth and family services.
- For the youth and families disadvantaged by trauma, the collective will be an intelligible interface for all the different services available – a seamless continuum of care.
- For grantors and other funders, the collective will be a single point of contact and accountability, simplifying the task of making grant and donation awards, and a more efficient and responsive allocation of resources.
- And for the nonprofits, our collective is a “plug-and- play” platform which gets back-office necessities out of the way so civic entrepreneurs can focus their time and energy on their mission, and not on administrative work.
