A Partnership with Many Roles

While no single organization can address complex community issues, we believe that by working together we can affect the positive change needed in Redwood City and North Fair Oaks. In the 1990’s, as the new millennium approached, the collaborative began when the leaders in our community decided to tackle those complex issues differently with a unique vision of partnership and collaboration across sectors. Ever since, the model has been streamlined and strengthened – collaboration is the natural keystone of all our work now. Here’s a look at how our unique community collaborative fits together and the partners who have joined forces to improve the health and success of Redwood City and North Fair Oaks.
