Love Your Neighbor Collaborative (LYNC): A Multi-sector Collaborative to Target Health Disparities for Vulnerable Populations

This is a multi-sector collaboration that includes, the Mayor of Riverside, seven Christian churches, local public and private agencies, and three accredited social work programs tasked with networking local services targeting the health care needs of the homeless in Riverside. Social work interns have been placed within a faith-based organization (FBO) to help establish a networked system of care that will help build service capacity within the participating FBO while allowing social work interns the professional practice experience required to meet their degree requirements.
