In 2013, the Partnership for Children became part of United Way, where we act as the anchor entity – managing the project, measuring progress and facilitating work, while keeping everyone focused on the shared vision. In the role as the backbone organization for the Partnership, United Way aligns the efforts of various community partners, keeping them working toward a similar goal, then convenes the partners to determine what’s working, what data is necessary, and what strategies will generate the best results.
The Partnership for Children brings together leaders from the education, health and human services, nonprofit, business, civic, and philanthropic sectors to improve outcomes for young people in the urban core of San Diego. The Partnership is focused on generating results through collaborative action, the effective use of data, and the alignment of resources that work for children and students. Every child, every step of the way.
Successful children emerge as successful, productive participants in our community. It's about building a new, sustainable way of serving every one of our community’s children: a 360 degree, community-wide effort aimed at aligning our region’s resources around a common strategy to drive youth success. By working together, our goal is to support every child, every step of the way – from the cradle to college or career – as well as to track and report on our community’s progress toward that goal.
