San Francisco

The San Francisco HSA-FCS prevention planning team showed engagement with cross-sector community partners and stakeholders to participate and offer feedback as part of their governance structure and CQI efforts. The Needs and Readiness Assessment conducted by the planning teams was thorough in exploring potential causes of disparity and in identifying what prevention services the community may need. San Francisco’s planning team identified eight (8) EBPs (4 approved through the Prevention Services Clearinghouse) to include in the initial round of implementation based on existing capacity and needs, the cross-cutting nature of the EBP, the age ranges supported, and the clinical licensure requirements due to the workforce shortages impacting California. Through these 8 EBPs and a comprehensive trauma-informed system, San Francisco County has developed prevention pathways for families to receive access to services that best meet their needs. As mentioned in San Francisco’s prevention plan, there are 491 programs providing prevention services and at least 419 of those programs are providing primary, secondary, or tertiary preventions services. Read the San Francisco Comprehensive Prevention Plan.
