Our Partners

Each WEDO CCAV partner is carefully selected for their history of excellence and quality of care. Our collaboration includes partnerships with several outstanding community-based organizations offering a variety of essential resources for achieving and sustaining individual independence.

Funded by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health – MHSA Innovation 2 grant, the WEDO CCAV collaboration is part of a county-wide project to build a trauma informed community. The overall Innovation 2 project is divided into several strategies, two of which are carried out by WEDO CCAV – Strategy 3 and Strategy 5. By working with our community of public service providers, educators, employers, housing providers, law enforcement, and faith-based organizations, WEDO hope to develop a safe and inclusive network of support and opportunity to two particularly vulnerable populations – Transitional Age Youth, ages 16-25 years, and justice involved adults who are reentering our community.

The Children’s Center of the Antelope Valley oversees the WEDO CCAV collaboration as well as provides peer mentoring, linkages and referrals. CCAV also hosts The Post – a day center for Transitional Age Youth to gain access to important resources.

Peer Mentoring

Perhaps the most innovative aspect of the WEDO program is our Transitional Age Youth Peer Support model, whereby young adults are empowered to assist their peers with linkages and referrals and provide mentorship through shared experiences. WEDO strongly believe that this peer-based model is both highly effective and sustainable for successful connection and relationship building with our participants. TAY Peer Support Specialists work diligently to assist participants with linkages to housing, academic, employment, and everyday necessities including obtaining IDs, filling out forms, and applying for jobs. Our unofficial slogan is “Adulting is Hard. Doing it Alone is Harder.”

 

The Post

In 2019, CCAV opened The Post, a day center designed for young adults to drop in for access to laundry, kitchen, and group activities. Although the space is limited, it has served as an initial effort to provide a welcoming, safe space for TAY to gain access to resources and social connectivity. As such, our tagline for The Post has become “Free Friends! Free Food! Free Fun!”
