CAST partners include representatives from County human service departments, healthcare providers, the Superior Court Judiciary, First 5 Santa Clara County, Santa Clara County Office of Education, and numerous community organizations dedicated to improving the lives of all Santa Clara County families.

CAST is dedicated to racial and social equity with the goal of dismantling systemic barriers and implicit biases.

Building an Integrated Single System of Support

In neighborhoods across Santa Clara County, people are working together to make sure that families have the support they need to thrive. Social workers, community organizers, teachers, doctors, and others are building the Integrated Single System of Support that gives people the services they need, when and where they need them.

In some communities, Family Resource Centers combine multiple Services under one roof.

The County has also set up 211 Santa Clara County, an online resource for multiple services.


Join Us!

Since 2006, CAST has helped improve County services in many ways, from addressing the needs of families in Dependency Court to creating a system-wide framework of trauma-informed, healing-centered care.
