Community Mobilizing with Close to Home: Lessons Learned
This is the second part of PreventConnect’s conversation with California Close to Home practitioners and trainers, Community Mobilizing in California with Close to Home.
On this podcast, Jessica Romo of Strength United, a California State University, Northridge community agency, and Kassi Reisbeck of Tahoe SAFE Alliance share their successes, lessons learned, and advice for prevention practitioners looking to engage in Close to Home community mobilization in their communities. When deeply invested in communities, sustainable prevention solutions emerge in ways previously unimaginable. Jessica and Kassi discuss how Close to Home plants seeds for leadership and prevention that communities then cultivate and blossom into lasting change.
