California Community Health Project

Our Shared

As part of the emergency response to COVID-19, the State of California Department of Social Services (CDSS) was tasked with reaching vulnerable communities with information to protect their health and to get vaccinated. For this campaign, CDSS sought to engage community-based organizations across the state to act as trusted messengers and deliver this information to the highest risk communities.SVM was contracted to provide onboarding and technical training for more than 119 CBO partners, in addition to building and maintaining the infrastructure for both CBO reporting and campaign collateral.
