The Westside Collaborative alliance of nonprofit agencies ensures that various perspectives are represented through the nominating of Core Team members. This advisory council serves as a partner to the Executive Director of the Collaborative. They play a vital role in the decision-making and workgroup oversight while also holding the staff and their roles accountable to the mission, purpose, and values of the Westside Collaborative. These Core Team members are NOT paid by the Westside Collaborative, but rather are working for their respective member-agencies and making sure that this nonprofit collective is moving in the right direction for all stakeholders.
