4:00 pm
our spark point center through the united way partnership and the broadband intentional -- technology program. there is a lot of investment and there is an opportunity to collaborate more effectively to have funds from dcys to matching from the health and services agencies. you name it. all the great resources. but what a lot of the values had in the umbrella is the opportunity to work together more effectively and have that be a truly data driven collaborative approach. internally rs at met a we've been integrating all of our funds from development to free tax preparation. we are getting
4:01 pm
a little bit of money from hud, cdfi and the department of labor and we are bringing those funds together and taking them to the next level to our own programs. here, i won't run through all of our amazing partners doing great work, but we have about 26 partners. i think almost every city agency has signed on. city college, the universities is here. we have an amazing set of partners doing great work that we look to collaborating with going forward. these are the results that we are trying to achieve. and so there is a set of 15 indicators from department of education that we have provided a baseline for and that we will be, we set target for over the course of the 5 years and
4:02 pm
that's part of our reporting to the department will be on progress in moving the needle towards our goals on those indicators with the ultimate goal that making sure kids are ready for school, graduate from high school and enter into college and their families have what they need to succeed. a brief update on where we are in implementation. we started back in january. our organization was about 30 people, we are now upwards of 60. all to support the work that meta is doing, that mission promise neighborhood is doing. we spend a lot of time hiring, interviewing and compiling a great team that is working hard together. we have contract with our partners. we had a fantastic backpack give away at the high school with the mayor's office. we had our launch where a lot of city
4:03 pm
leadership came out, leader pelosi came out and we had secretary donovan come out and we also had some leadership from doe come visit us. our data team has been working hard on data discovery assessing the performance of or assessing performance measures for all our organizational partners and understanding how they collect data. we've also been focused on building our collaborative. we do want to see this go beyond 5 years. we think it critical and we've engaged with cutf, with koretzsky, chase and we are building that foundation for sustainability. so what i really want to focus on today and i wanted to frame this conversation is to ensure that we talk about not just kind of
4:04 pm
what we are doing like the strategies that we are implementing, but really what our approach, what the framework is for the work, how we are approaching this work of community changes with all of our partners and how we are trying to innovate and push the envelope forward when it comes to building a really strong infrastructure for service delivery that is data driven. i hope my colleagues talk about it that way because that is what i think really unique to the promise neighborhood framework that they want to use the majority of funds to build infrastructure for service and delivery and that is where the potential parties and the agencies and with the districts
4:05 pm
and all of our community partners can really be leveraged. really quickly on the framework, all of our service will be culturally relevant. we want to make sure everything is need based. we don't want a duplications of service. we want to make sure we are meeting people where they are at and giving them what they need. everything will be evidence based and we'll take a service integration approach to our collaborative to ensure economic achievement and ensure economic success. >> supervisor avalos wants to make a comment. >> thank you. i want to make a brief comment. i have to leave. i have a public safety community meeting that i can't be late for. i simply wanted to say that i'm very proud that
4:06 pm
this effort and this initiative is happening in san francisco and that it's happening in the mission. again, kudos to meta for their leadership and identifying this possible grant. thank you to the mayor's office, to commissioner mendoza, superintendant carlos garcia and the board of education and agreeing to be partners with meta. it really is a team effort. thigh it's great to see that we are at the center of educational innovation and the rest of the country is watching and looking to san francisco to see how we are doing and how we are going to do this. i'm just excited that for the next five 5 years you will see not only the $30 million in federal funding but
4:07 pm
everything else that will be leveraged and my hope is that it something we can take on the road to the rest of the city. i assume at some point to the rest of the state and the country. i'm really honored to have been a part of it from the beginning and look forward to continue to work with this amazing team. the last thing i want to say is you see the folks the meta has hired and really top individuals have been hired. it exciting to see. >> thank you supervisor campos for being herement we recognize this is in your district. it's great to see that the partnership exist. we know that this is going to be successful if we see this as all of our initiative and we have to work
4:08 pm
to make that successful. >> exactly. if you want to partner with us on a tour bus and take it on the road. that would be great. this is our rgs -- this graphic really encompasses the whole project that encompasses the integrated systems, all the universal services that we'll be providing, the different initiatives that are being implemented and the results that we are trying to achieve. that outer ring is really the kind of , the systems piece which includes the leverage of resources and policies and our building to collaborate on coordination on familien gaenlment on central canal. building a capacity of
4:09 pm
organization in the city and the government holding ourselves accountable. what i want to point out here is that all of this goes down to the center which is the connection between came achievement and family economic success. most promised neighborhoods is really the focus on the academic success of children. we think it incredibly important. if children are in poverty, their ability to achieve in school will be limited. they don't have access to the same resources. their housing is not stable. very likely they maybe suffering from mental health trauma, all sorts of things that come with the conditions of living in poverty. so our approach, our organizational strength and our approach to this work is a two generational approach where we will not only work on specific
4:10 pm
strategies that improve came achievement but also provide family economic success support that will also support economic achievement. so this i think is kind of a critical point that we want to make and i think that makes us stand out from other promise neighborhoods and at the heart of our initiative. we used it and also created earlier this year a work force wheel. so we are really looking that the systems approach so we took it and adapted it and i blame louis for this. but really, when were looking at work force who is talking with oewc, who is here, what we are building now is a system for work force development that
4:11 pm
encompasses the data for the outreach communication. all the things from the integrated services to the supported services to work force readiness and a system to each element which we call our pipeline whether that is education, whether that is early learning or community housing. so we are now the looking into doing the same for the other elements. one of the key things is also building a family economic success continuum that incorporates income supports so that work that meta does around tax preparation and a coaching that allows where we coach clients to reach their financial goals. we have employment, we have businesses development and we also work on housing. so this we are looking at the spectrum
4:12 pm
of family economic success that can wrap around our whole family. this is a little bit about how we measure it around income debt and savings and job placement, tax returns. what's really, so the kind of next step that we are taking this to is really looking at all the different elements. so health, what would it look like if we developed this comprehensive system around health and tied to economic success? so just look at the centerpiece wechl didn't edit any of the other stuff. just to call out how these two component go hand in hand with economic success and what we are starting to work on now with some of our partners is the affordable housing tying to the family economic success. really taking this wheel everywhere we go.
4:13 pm
the other key thing around service delivery that we've been working on for several years through spark points and now we can take this to the next level through mission promise neighborhood is integrating and coordinating services to make sure they are tracked and we don't lose people between organizations and partners. we develop our marketing strategies. everybody knows what are the benefit and every organization adopts the language between an existing community. what would it look like to have a common intake form across organizations. if you fill one out do you have to fill one out every place you go or can you fill out one. i'm sure there is plenty of challenges associated with that that would be a fantastic way
4:14 pm
to go. can we auto enroll people when they come if their income is below something, can we auto enroll them in another service that we know they need or qualify for and breakdown some of those barriers that many families face. we have now a dedicated services coordinator that facilitates the connectors between all of our services to build those pipelines as families go through it and maybe the most exciting piece is having a shared data base where agencies, school districts, cbo partners can share a common data and look at the clients and see i'm working with lopez family and i'm going log in and see what's happening with the lopez family and i also see
4:15 pm
that mission neighborhood center is working with that family. how can we other us that shared data base to look at things in a different way and to collaborate on these essentially collaborate on these families case conferencing approach across agencies to improve our services and to ultimately improve their outcomes. that's our vision for integration. >> can i ask you a quick question about that? a couple years ago when i was on the school board and sat on this committee, we had a conversation about how to share data between our students and maybe youth that are in and out of our juvenile system to ensure that it's helping young people and price of -- price -- privacy came up. >> privacy is a huge thing. we
4:16 pm
are certainly not there yet, the consent is an issue, the privacy issues and some organizations around like the health care organizations, there is a lot of hippa and all that. we are working to see how we can work together to collaborate with some of the other city agencies to remove some of those barriers and we can figure it out as we go. we know the a huge barrier. >> i think we need your help. >> as we begin to fill these out, we'll look at whatever help we can get to replicate this across the city. we have no problem being guinea pigs in this. as i mentioned earlier, this
4:17 pm
is our zone. and going back to this integration piece, this is the physical manifestation of what we are trying to achieve around service integration where we've identified not only the schools but community anchor institutions that are well respected and provide a lot of services as kind of entry point into system. as you go into anyone of these sites you can enter into pipeline. that's another way that we are looking at it. we are looking at what it means to be in a community hub and what are the logos and all that stuff so we can create that community within these organizations. i briefly touched on this family success coach that we talked about in harlem. these are meta staff that will be at these
4:18 pm
community hubs and really service ambassadors for the mission promise neighborhood. they are the connectors and work with families to further assess needs and goals with the financial capability lens and talking with our partner organizations and especially at the school site. we looked at, there are a lot of services available at the schools but the financial education, the financial coaching is something that they lack and so we feel this is a huge value to add to bring on site and their approach is around building trust around coaching and empowering families to meet their goals. so i will talk a little bit about another very exciting piece around the valuation and our john gardener team is here, maria who is a
4:19 pm
researcher and monica lopez and laurel is here. this you -- thank you for coming ladies. i may call you if you have more to talk about. this is really an outcome driven data driven and outcome driven project. as you know our services are required by doe to be evidence based. we have established the common indicators and outcomes and now we are working with our partner agencies to ultimately ensure that we are all working in achieving what we said we were going to achieve. we partnered with stanford who has been working already with the school district for several years and several other agencies to create a research and evaluation design. we are
4:20 pm
entering the muddy waters and scary waters of data sharing agreement and working on consent issues and we are just required by doe to get an irb clearance, individual rights review board. we'll be conducting a survey in the spring to get at a lot of the data that you just can't get with the traditional or the most common data sources like the census. like are kids safe and what are that credit savings we families and the housing situation and finally the data base. we just launched it in the case management system and we are now working on phase two which is actually developing the
4:21 pm
second phase where partners can use it collaboratively. this is our data and evaluation framework. we really want to know at the population level, is the promise neighborhood better off as a result of these integrated services that we will be providing to our residents. so we have a common set of measures there. we also want to know are children's families receiving the service they need for success and are these pipelines effective and partners working together to ensure children and families are better off. we want to look at all of these levels of analysis to get at. is this working? if it's not, what can we do to change it? so we are taking this, we aren investing heavily in the data and values component. we have a 5-person
4:22 pm
evaluation team. we have this amazing partnership with the garden center. we are taking this really seriously. and then this is kind of a maybe it's not clear but this is how we p you are the data flowing between partners and our case management system. john gardener center has access to the student level data which we do not. we will be sending them all our partnering clients data. they will be combining it with student data and we'll be able to see did these services have an impact on scores and we'll be able to do that service and performance matching and finally we'll be sending some of this data to the department and now urban institute who is starting to look at the promise neighborhood initiative
4:23 pm
throughout the country. so there is a lot of opportunity when it comes to the data sharing and just data and evaluation and what we are partner with city agencies with the school district creating these common intake forms and sharing of data across agencies, developing shared performance measures and developing outcomes of what we are trying to achieve so we can all measure it in the same way. that agencies and cbo's can align and even foundations can align on what kind of outcomes we want to see and that we also invest in our communities capacity to do the data work, to do the evaluation work because it's hard and because it's expensive. i'm going to call up my colleague mark who
4:24 pm
can talk about how we are viewing and creating the sustain ability for the community to further this work by building the capacity of non-profits, by buildings a capacity of parent, students and residents in the community. to ultimately own this work and carry it forward. so he'll talk a little bit about it. >> thank you, victor. my make the is marco and the leadership academy from the from the mission promise neighborhood. this will to show you what i'm passionate about as far as the leadership. victor talked about the two shared supervisor kim and commissioner mendoza, supervisor kim you talked about strengthening partnerships and creating stability and commissioner mendoza you talked
4:25 pm
about the importance of the collaboration and supervisor kim you mentioned making this our initiative, right, but not just the city and meta's but the whole community. that is what this leadership academy is about. it's about invigorating a continued commitment and buying participation at all levels. i will talk a little bit more about that. we also want to build the capacity of high performing community organizations to ensure long-term sustainability and the ability to scale up what works. i think there is no argument in terms of the critical role that non-profit play in the community in terms of helping to strengthen it and we want to make sure these grass roots organization
4:26 pm
continue to do that. we want to work with parents and children so they develop ownership and get them to actively participate in the decision making process. so, there are fourth components. the organizational capacity building, the community organizing advocacy and policy and working with promotoras. in terms of the organizational capacity building, some of the work that we are doing is helping to build these next generation of leaders. as you think about sustain ability and long-term trajectory that can help keep this vision and really commit to doing this work and doing it well. some of the thing that we are putting in place are for example, peer exchanges which is where you bring this next generation of
4:27 pm
leaders to network and provide the skills to do that work. in terms of community organizations, advocacy and policies building a leadership in students and parent and residents so they become strong advocates for policies that support mission promise neighborhood. >> i want to be really thoughtful about the time. i know there is 40 minutes allocated to this presentation. we are already at that point. we haven't gotten to questions and comments. i don't know if you want to think about what you want to cover. we want to make sure that we get to the 40th anniversary of the organization. >> nobody wants to get any faster than us. let me go to the part that victor talked about in terms of really opportunities and where we see opportunities exist. i think there is an opportunity to standardize family engagement
4:28 pm
and really around developing a standardized system. it should say with the school district and also making sure that they are culturally base and linguistically trained personnel. and we've learned that our early childhood managers working with some of these providers and she's worked with latino providers network, she knows there is also african american provider network and asian provider network and what we are hearing is there are more support to working together and share chaelgs as challenges as well as strategies. the comment relative to the paper in terms of the secretary donovan's visit was where the student talked about the neighborhood being taken over. we think that one way in which we can help young people really
4:29 pm
aspire to these leadership roles is to help build capacity in the latino community around serving on boards and serving on commissions. what doesn't appear here but other opportunities are around transitions. how do we help youth that are going into middle school by potentially providing them with summer camps where they can get much better acclimated with what they are about to step into and summer programs to get these kids to participate in these programs and victor talked about data sharing and one that comes up almost every summer, supervisor avalos you worked on this issue in just providing job development opportunity for youth, but paid jobs over the he summer for
4:30 pm
high school youth. thank you. >> thank you. are there any questions on comments around this section of the presentation? >> please stop us so we don't have to wait until the end? >> is there more? >> we have two more 30-minute presentations after this? >> i will be facilitating. >> okay. my apologies. let's take a break at this point before we move on to sfusd and city department for questions and comments. commissioner wynns? s >> i
