Ready, Resilient, Rising! Network (R3)
R3 will work to improve systems that will positively impact the lives of all low-income children ages zero to five in San Francisco County by reimagining early childhood systems of care that: collaboratively and universally detect, prevent and treat adversity and trauma; that are centered on healing and resilience, resolving unmet basic needs, and supporting early relational and social emotional health; and that are grounded in lived experience. They will establish a Family Accountability Roundtable to create solutions grounded in lived experience.
It is imperative that the major systems of early care collaborate and synergize, including co-creating clear metrics, goals, and strategies. R3 will share information and best practices across systems and align metrics and incentives that will support care coordination to disseminate models of sustainability building of state policy reform and treatment of toxic stress and promote resilience for young children and their families.
"The Hellman Collaborative Change Initiative GROWTH Award enables us to deepen our clinical work to help all children grow to reach their potential. Our work is grounded in anti-racist and trauma informed care and addressing adversity through a strength-based framework focused on relationships, mental health and resource referral navigation. The work on the ground informs our system thought leadership to advocate for policies that uplift children and families." - Dayna Long, M.D., FAAP, Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Department of Pediatrics, UCSF
