Giving Families a Chance: The Collaboration between Family Court Services and FIRST 5

Recognizing that families entering the courts often have deep problems that threaten members of the household, the Superior Court of Santa Clara reached out to First 5. The court and county agency pooled resources to give at-risk families with young children priority access to programs. As a result, court interventions for these families have been reduced dramatically.
