Background and media

The planning process for the local FEC began in 2018, when the CFE Fund sent two representatives to meet with 65 key Sacramento stakeholders. The City held two community forums; the first was with City and County representatives and funders, and the second was with local nonprofit community leaders. The key takeaways from participant feedback at these forums were as follows:

  • The most important factors to consider are: 1) integration with existing work in the community rather than creating a new wheel; 2) ensuring cultural competency of counselor/coaches and the overall initiative approach; 3) location/accessibility for target populations.
  • In order, the top-mentioned specific integration partnership ideas were youth (especially ages 18-24), housing, medical/health, employment/entrepreneurship, City/County, and faith-based.

Sacramento’s FEC began providing services in the spring of 2020. Following are various informational links and videos about the FEC.
