Using data, extensive community experience and a focus on results, CSSP:
It works in partnership with federal, state and local public agencies and with private sector organizations, foundations and community members. As resources dwindle and inequities grow – among income groups, across racial and ethnic lines – efforts to create opportunities for those in greatest need require many minds and hands working together.
CSSP also engages community residents so that their views and voices shape the work. It believes that public agencies, foundations and others trying to improve results for children and families must “co-invest” with the parents and community members - the true customers of this work.
With multiple partners, it’s important that all the work is results-focused. Commonly defined results help keep complex strategies on track, whether for community change or systems reform. A shared commitment to results keeps everyone more accountable and focused on making a difference.
Within all of its work, CSSP is committed to being an anti-racist organization - understanding, confronting and addressing inequities based on race, ethnicity, language capacity and more. CSSP is focused on better futures for all children and families.
