About Long Beach Forward (LBF):
Long Beach Forward focuses on strengthening the power of organizations and community
members by providing them with the tools and training necessary to be heard, be influential,
and drive real change in Long Beach. We are motivated by the belief that everyone in Long
Beach should be able to influence the decisions that impact their lives and the knowledge
that oftentimes low-income communities of color are left out of decision-making.
LBF provides leadership, strategy, communications, and convening support to multiple
campaigns in order to advance the vision that Long Beach will be a place where race and
income do not determine one’s future—it’s a community where everyone is safe, connected,
and healthy. LBF was established in 2010 to coordinate the collaborative efforts of The
California Endowment’s Building Healthy Communities initiative in Long Beach. LBF now
partners with over 50 community-based organizations and facilitates or participates in
multiple collaborative groups and campaigns, including the role of Local Support Network for
the Best Start Central Long Beach initiative.

LBF is a hybrid work environment with remote and in-person working options. Occasional work
and meetings will be required in-person. Per our health and safety protocols, all employees must
be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by 60 days of employment with the organization and
participate in mandatory COVID-19 testing every two weeks.

About the Long Beach Home Visitation Collaborative (LB HVC):
The purpose of the LB HVC is to strengthen and sustain a collaboration of organizations that
serve families with young children in Greater Long Beach. Through capacity building and
information sharing, we promote the value of Home Visitation services that support families
towards resiliency and self-sufficiency. All new families need help and support to raise a
healthy baby, but some families need just a little more than others. Home Visiting is intended
for families who need more focused support in caring for themselves and their newborns.
Home visitors provide personalized support and information to families during home visits,
including but not limited to: positive parenting, child health and development, constructive
play ideas, developmental screenings, and a resource network that links parents/caregivers to
other community services.
