* Congress of African-American Organizations (CAAO)
The Congress of African-American Organizations began after the economic crisis demonstrated that public dollars were waning; which made it more difficult for community-based organizations to serve the hard hit black communities.
Furthermore, the African-American communities continue to have the most pressing health disparities, and are over-represented in the following:
- Foster care
- Publicly funded substance abuse and mental health programs
- High school drop out
- Criminal justice system
A project of the Southeast Community Response Collaborative with funding from the Bayview Community Fund. The current chairperson is Jacob Moody.
* Mental Health Contractors Association
* Juvenile Justice Providers Association
* Human Services Network (HSN)
