Purpose

The Sacramento County Children's Coalition serves as an advisory body to the Board of Supervisors on matters relating to the needs of children and families in Sacramento County.

Scope of Work

The Sacramento County Children’s Coalition's mission is to assess community needs, evaluate existing services, and make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors and other policy-making bodies in order to promote the health and well-being of children and families in Sacramento County. We advocate for children's issues by funding programs, protecting children and reporting on results. We provide both policy oversight and community education about the needs of children and families.

We do this work through our various committees:

Children's Trust Fund -  We provide grants to a variety of local agencies that  prevent child abuse. We also monitor their work and report the results of these grant-funded projects.

Child Protective Systems Oversight - We work together to review the system of agencies and organizations involved in protecting children throughout Sacramento County.

Policy and Advocacy - We gather data and information from a number of sources about the quality of Sacramento Children's lives and recommend policy changes in those areas.

Meetings

*In observance of our current Public Health advisories to practice social distancing and staying at home, Coalition and committee meetings are canceled through the end of May. Members continue carrying on their advocacy and oversight work virtually, however. Public may email comments to noscea@saccounty.net.​​​
