Project Highlights

First 5 Monterey County

programs employed four core strategies—policy advocacy and strategic communications, funding for integrated service collaboratives, capacity building for organizations and practitioners, and training in infant and early childhood mental health.

SPR analyzed these

strategies and assessed the overall integrated services approach.

Our team documented

how programs experienced integrated services and what changes resulted from the new approach, and identified areas for improvement.

Input from families, care coordinators, and Collaborative administrators demonstrates the ways that F5MC’s care coordination services have helped families access appropriate services to support the wellbeing of young children."
