The Southeast Los Angeles community is focused on working together to advocate on behalf of the individual cities to enhance access to resources and improve the sustainability of their programs. The existing collaboratives have been growing and, although they are not as established as in other communities, these collaboratives are seen as tremendous assets to the community. As a Best Start community, these advocates and community collaboratives will lend their voices along with parents, teachers and other community members to build healthy, supportive neighborhoods for their families and children.
Community leadership in Southeast LA is described as “passionate, committed, resourceful, vibrant, emerging, connected, collaborative and engaging.”
