Collaboratives in the Wilmington community have evolved from focusing on primarily mental health-oriented services within the elementary schools to an increased variety and number of existing and active partnerships. The Service Planning Area (SPA) 8 collaborative now includes local cities, school districts, community- and faith-based organizations, as well as the local oil refineries. Additional partnerships were developed to engage other sectors including local law enforcement and the City of Los Angeles. The Wilmington community is also home to several programs that help to prepare younger generations of leaders, including high school programs and youth coalitions.
Community leadership in Wilmington is described as “committed, compassionate and understanding of the community.”
