Connecting people across Anaheim so children, youth, and families can thrive.
About Network Anaheim
Founded in 2014 as a Children’s Bureau Place-Based Strategy, Network Anaheim works to connect people across the city that are working to make positive community changes. Place-based approaches are highly collaborative and involve a range of partners working together on complex problems. They have a strong focus on people and place. Network Anaheim brings together community members, nonprofit partners, school districts, businesses and other partners to create equitable opportunities for all children and families to thrive.
Network Anaheim leverages numerous strategies—from strengthening Family Resource Centers as service hubs, to gathering key data on child and family well-being, to engaging community residents as leaders.
By building bridges across organizations, working with residents, creating new spaces and systems for sharing resources and data, and spurring innovative solutions, Network Anaheim increases the capacity of our community to help children, youth, and families thrive.
Mission: Network Anaheim is a place-based strategy that connects and builds the capacity of people, resources, and neighborhoods to advance our 4 pillars of a thriving community: Move Well/Eat Well, Learn Well, Think Well, Live Well.
Vision: All children, youth, and families thriving in Anaheim
