EES at the Leadership Table for the Vista Partnership for Children
The Vista Partnership for Children (VPfC) includes multiple stakeholders supporting local youth, all gathered around one table, working toward a common goal: improving opportunities and life outcomes for all children in the region. By convening key partners – nonprofits, local government entities, school districts, teachers, parents, health and human services and other organizations – a tree has been planted in Vista that will bear fruit for all of our children.
Lead partners – including Vista Unified School District, the City of Vista, the County Health and Human Services Agency, Vista Community Clinic, the Vista Chamber of Commerce, United Way, EES, and many more –have agreed on baseline data, critical milestones and specific indicators to measure progress over time.
Now, by aligning resources, knowledge and outcomes, they are embracing collective impact, an innovative approach to solving our community’s most complex social issues.
United Way serves as the Partnership’s project manager, providing staff and resources to keep all stakeholders focused on the shared vision: to ensure healthy, well-educated children and thriving neighborhoods. United Way staff also handles facilitation, community trainings, data analysis and other advisory functions that are critical to success.
