History and Service Delivery Philosophies
The Folsom Cordova Community Partnership is a 501(c)3 community-based non-profit. We work with the community to:
- build strong families
- meet the needs of struggling parents, to increase self sufficiency
- promote youth development through positive peer and adult relationships
We bring together resources and programming in a community resource center model to create a “one-stop shop,” which encourages and supports families as they identify their own needs and reach their own goals to fight cycles of child abuse, incarceration, and poverty. We recognize that each family has strengths and encourage the family to build on these to solve their own challenges.
Founded in 1992 as the Folsom Cordova Schools Foundation, The Partnership has a 18-year history providing quality services to families with children 0-5. In 2005, with the funding of the Roots and Horizons Mentoring Children of Prisoners program, The Partnership expanded to include services for youth 8-17 into its programming. In 2008, The Partnership developed Intervention Services, to provide resource and referral, short-term case management, and emergency supplies to families in crisis. The Partnership strives to meet changing community needs through high quality assessment and program development.
