Palmdale

The Palmdale community is often characterized by being located in the most Northern region within Los Angeles County, which isolates it from resources in the Los Angeles basin, such as treatment centers and specialty healthcare. However, the distance has resulted in the community becoming more resourceful and utilizing what is available to the best of their ability. There is a strong presence of regional collaboration in the community, which allows organizations to participate in collaborations without having to travel long distances. Organizations have made an extra commitment to be active in the community.

Community leadership in Palmdale is described as ”strength-based, cohesive, growing, developing, improving and conservative.”
