The Children’s Partnership
President: Mayra E. Alvarez
All donations made to TCP in support of the mental health agenda put forward by the H3C will be generously matched up to $20,000!
For over 25 years, The Children’s Partnership has envisioned a California where all children—regardless of their race, ethnicity or place of birth—have the resources and opportunities they need to grow up healthy and thrive. Our mission is to advance this vision of child health equity through research, policy and community engagement.
Begin to Build a Relationship
We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s director of development and/or Executive Director.
I give to The Children’s Partnership because I believe in the power of communities. When I invest in the work they do, I know that children’s voices are being heard and their health is being protected. The Children’s Partnership is an organization I trust to ensure children and families are safe.
A $200,000 Goal
For the hope, healing and health of BIPOC youth, systemic change is the only way forward.
TCP supports the BIPOC youth-led policy council, known affectionately as the H3C, in reforming the mental health landscape for their communities.
With funding for the council to deliver recommendations through 2021, we need your help to put their agenda into action. Policy implementation takes advocating to legislators, building public will, and staffing resources that require us to raise $200,000. Our Board will match up to 10 percent.
In 2020, as the pandemic worsened mental health crises, Black and Latinx children were 14 percent less likely than white to receive treatment for depression. Suicide was the second leading cause of death for Native youth – nearly 3.5 times higher than the national average.
We need your help to not only empower the voices of 15 youth leaders, but also get their ideas to the finish line, creating policy change that impacts millions.
