Alexandria, VA – Making and keeping Alexandria’s children healthy is complicated since there are so many different agencies and organizations dedicated to the same general outcome. Consequently, the findings of the Children, Youth and Families Collaborative Commission’s 2014 “Children and Youth Master Plan Five Year Report” will be released on Dec. 11 at Alexandria’s City Hall.
The meeting, which will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Vola Lawson Lobby at City Hall, will also launch the process to develop the five-year Children and Youth Master Plan 2025, which will align with the Alexandria City Public Schools Strategic Plan, the Alexandria Health Department’s Community Health Improvement Plan 2025 with the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria and the City’s Department of Community and Human Services.
“We are all talking to each other regularly to make sure that we are in alignment of these plans,” said Natalie Talis, a public health planner with the Alexandria Health Department. “We are coordinating all three plans and the development of these efforts so that we can align our resources, data collection, and community outreach to better serve Alexandria.”
