Collaboratives in the 16 counties located on the central western border of the state are working together to bring change for those living in poverty by providing food and essentials—and bringing hope—to children and families in need.
They’re focusing on school success by showing students how to make right or wrong choices that could affect their lives, and by connecting communities to local schools.
They’re also increasing awareness to mental health issues among school-aged youth, and connecting children, youth, and families suffering from behavioral health issues with the appropriate services.
