Community Partners

Successful Families 2020

Successful Families 2020 is a unique partnership of culturally specific and culturally responsive nonprofits that transform our community by improving outcomes for youth and families of color in Multnomah Country. We do this by validating the effectiveness of culturally specific and responsive services, identifying ways this knowledge can be replicated beyond our founding partners and increasing the effectiveness of systems as responsive to our communities of color.

We value cultural identity as an asset and believe every system and service must be a reflection of the communities they serve.

We provide services and connect families with community resources. The SF 2020 office is located on the stage in the cafeteria of Mill Park Elementary.
